Last month we shared news from the Solus team when they reported they had been out of contact with Solus founder Ikey Doherty. The team has been making progress, regaining access to some of the project's accounts and planning for the distribution's future. A detailed status update is available in a Solus blog post.
Another update comes from the Phoronix website which has published a letter reportedly from Doherty in which he supports the passing of the leadership from himself to the rest of the Solus team: "I'd like to start out by thanking the Solus team for all their hard work and passion over the years. By way of response to their recent blog post, I in no way see what they've done as a "hostile takeover", rather, a natural evolution of the project. The truth is, the Solus project has stood on its own merit and feet for a long time, and has moved under it's own steam. For a long time I had said that I was merely the first settler in the town that would become Solus, and in time it would need it's own architects, planners and mayor."
