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

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!

  <RELEASE NOTE>

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

  Security and non-intrusive version updates.

             is a big challange for some people when installing... ;-)
r3213 * merged r2932 from trunk:
          * stone's mod_setup, sources setup_*.sh files to let misc packages to
            add their own postinstall scripts. (which don't deserve an own 
            module because they will run only once)

r3218 * merged r3148 from trunk:
          * fixed the stone setup module to create cdrom and floppy instead of

r3408 * merged r3308 from trunk:
