I've neglected to produce a 2.4 release, which is very unlikely to happen anymore now. Retargetting for 3.0.

while we may not make a 2.4 release (still trying to decide), I'd say this is a valid ticket.
A 2.4 some time in the next few months would be nice, but no promise.

Due to the fact that many russian Internet users establish their
Internet-connection with pppoe (in my hometown most of them), I suggest to include pppoe into the basic gnewsense iso image. This way the Internet will work out of box, and it will probably increase the number of gnewsense users from Russia.

Besides, in gnewsense 2.3 there are problems with cyrillics in console. The problem can be solved by installation of console-cyrillic and running /usr/bin/cyr -e NEEDED_ENCODING. So, I also suggest to include into the basic distribution the console-cyrillic package. That is one more way to appeal users from Russia.

Both packages are quite small in size, so, I hope, their inclusion is not going to be a problem.
