A tease of some final touches on the design for the new Packaging section of the upcoming Help Center redesign for #Solus.
Yes, that is a Learn Solus Packaging section you see. Yes, that video series will be making a return. The dozens of you that asked for it will be happy 😄

It's summertime and you know what that means, it's time to close our curtains, hide from the sun, and have another hackfest! In this hackfest, Bryan continues his work on rewriting ferryd to enable faster syncs, deltas, and indexing. I work on the Help Center redesign!

Quite literally enabling "32bit" support in most of our packages is a single `emul32 : yes` entry in our package.yml. Worst case is we dynamically set different compile-time flags. It's all built from the same package.yml, same version, same source, as the main package.
So with all the news about Ubuntu's 32-bit / multilib future deprecation / reduced support, I'd like to remind people that #Solus is happy to provide multilib libs for Steam, WINE, and specific binary compatibility, and we're typically able to do it with such little to no effort.
I've gone ahead and created a dedicated thread on our Flarum to help consolidate support queries for those which are not familiar or yet comfortable with our Development Tracker. https://discuss.getsol.us/d/937-03-05-2019-sync-report - Joshua
Going to start pushing the GNOME Stack upgrade + Budgie git builds for #Solus tomorrow. Keep an eye on our blog for news about it, I'll put one out when the stack upgrade is complete!
Due to the later-than-usual sync this week, I'm going to be pushing back the Week 10 sync until next Tuesday. Feel free to read more at https://discuss.getsol.us/d/162-deferring-week-10-sync-until-tuesday-12-03-2019 - Joshua
