Subject: [rock-user] [rock-linux] [ANNOUNCE] ROCK Linux - v2.0.2 (wildlife)

finally a release in-time! Since some scripting around Subversion's
merging stuff making pushing changesets around so much fun here goes
2.0.2 - "wildlife".

Since we now have a SVN:log -> ChangeLog converter, this time with
full ChangeLog again!

Also due always active work on non-x86 ports this time with full boot
CD on Sparc64 (Ultra SPARC) and IBM RS/6000 (RS/6k) support!

As well as the usual updates, fixes and security fixes pulled from the
development tree:

The changes from 83 changesets, include about 37 fixes, 27 updates
and 21 additions.

There will not be official binaries from me this time. I already
scheduled the next release with linux24 2.4.27 in about 2-4 weeks -
binaries will be available for this one.

But a minimal-desktop build for 686 should be available in the "Linux
Intern" magazine next month (available in most German speaking parts
of Europe).

THanks to all the contributors!


  Mintenenance release following in the usual OpenSource
  release early release often cycle:

  Security and non-intrusive version updates.

          * stone's mod_setup, sources setup_*.sh files to let misc packages to
