 We all have different goals but we can learn to share the more general standards, concepts and goals. Align yourself with the philosophy and goals of the community and Linux world first of all, then you will find your own ways of contributing. We all have different goals but we can learn to share the more general standards, concepts and goals.

-The dCore project is grass roots Linux supported primarily by developer Jason W with assistance from the Tiny Core Linux team and keen members. Keeping all this software running is a moving target as Linux develops, Debian and Ubuntu repositories change, packages get updated, etc. A script that previously worked well may require updating to accommodate changes or a new release. It's a lot of work for a small assembly of volunteers. Whenever possible, attempt to provide a solution or work around for the problem.+The dCore project is grass roots Linux supported primarily by developer Jason W with assistance from the Tiny Core Linux team and keen members.

 * dCore-install: Last check the dCore-install script did not work. It did not appear to recognize the ISO downloaded, likely related to the file name. This may be a relatively simple fix but would require some testing. Robust coding to accommodate future ISO name changes would be beneficial (eg. dCore-wily.iso vs dCore-xenial.iso). * dCore-install: Last check the dCore-install script did not work.

 * dCore-google-chrome-stable-installer: This command must be imported using sce-import dCore-google-chrome-stable-installer. It is used to convert Google Chrome browser into an SCE but was not functional when last tested as Google has changed their download process and Terms of Service. The script may need to be updated similar to the dCore-java-installer script, which first requires the user to manually download the relevant package and then initiate the dCore installation script. * dCore-google-chrome-stable-installer: This command must be imported using sce-import dCore-google-chrome-stable-installer.

 +* Printer and scanner installation wiki update: The dCore wiki would benefit from a how to regarding printer and scanner installation. An update is pending as this contributor finally has a printer and scanner to work with.

 +* The dCore tc-functions Script Overview section (http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:tc-functions) is incomplete and should either be updated or removed, if anyone is able to review and complete that would be great.
