Na liście redhat-watch-list pojawił się mail Bill Nottinghama, który ogłasza pojawienie się w sieci nowej bety dystrybucji Red Hat – tym razem chodzi o wersję nazywającą się Roswell. Polecam zaznajomienie się z treścią maila, który jest dość nietypowy jak na mail obwieszczający istnienie nowej wersji oprogramowania. Obrazy ISO Roswella możecie znalezć na serwerze ftp producenta…

  From:     Bill Nottingham <>  To:  Subject: Announcing a beta release of Red Hat Linux: Roswell  Date:     Thu, 2 Aug 2001 08:05:00 -0400    It has come to our attention that rumors are floating regarding  the appearance of a Red Hat Linux beta release, named ROSWELL. We  would like to reassure you that there is nothing of the sort.    No other object has been misidentified as a Red Hat Linux beta release  more often than Rawhide. Rawhide was updated just recently. Reporters  probably thought they saw something on an FTP site other than Rawhide,  but we assure you, it was Rawhide.    Reports cite that this supposed ROSWELL beta included 4 CDs of software,  with such things as a 2.4.6 Linux kernel, XFree86 4.1.0, KDE 2.2pre,  GNOME 1.4, and journaling file system support, and included support  for both x86 and ia64.    Were any such Red Hat Linux beta release to exist, it would not be  recommended for use on mission-critical hardware, and any casualties  due to data loss, mutation, swamp gas, radiation, or strange glowing lights  with such a release would be scoffed at. Any problems or bugs with such  a release would most likely be the effect of passing weather balloons.  These problems would be reported at:      However, there is no evidence to suggest the actual presence of a ROSWELL  beta release. Those who claim otherwise would best not flaunt their  naivete by telling anyone that they saw anything other than Rawhide.    Documents pertaining to this supposed beta release are  available at:     Or, at the following mirror sites:     Alabama, USA:   Massachusetts, USA:   New York, USA:   Pennsylvania, USA:   Washington, DC, USA:     Czech Republic:   France:   Germany:   Israel:   Romania:      or check for a mirror  near you.    For more information on this sighting, send mail to:    with       subscribe       in the subject line. You can leave the body empty. Or see:
