For now, it's not done yet but by design it would allow almost
everything if we gatter a few developpers to make the releases since I
don't code but that doesn't mean I can't know the flaws and design an
answer to them.

I will probably be in another project after that may help promote the
distro in a breeze but I intend to release it has open source and
leave it slowly to the community, I tried to grab the attention of
Sonar/Vinux developpers merging but no use, sad since I may have found
how to fix accessibility once and for all but it need a little twist
to get it there over time.
