Who is the creator and how does he control the project?
Pinguino was first released in 2008 by Jean-Pierre Mandon. The community that later developed Pinguino is completely open, without any formal agenda or structure. It often takes newcomers a while to realize that, other than being friendly, there aren't really any rules to Pinguino. If you want to do something, make a new library, offer your skills or take things in a new direction, just do so and be surprised that support will be around. However, questions will be asked so be ready to defend your ideas.
