see http://www.rocklinux.org/rock20down.html)

Most important changes:
All build errors have been fixed at least for the x86 architecture.

Tons of updates got merged from trunk.

The new "build-bootstrap" package selection provides a small set of packages
necessary to build everything else. This package selection is used for the
"reference build system" to provide cache-files and binary releases.

Personal side note:
As you already noticed it's me being the new stable-release maintainer
of ROCK Linux. If you have any wishes/requests or questions about the policy
regarding patches, merge-backs, or updates - don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks to the whole "ROCK Linux"-crew for supporting me that well doing my
new job.

sincerely yours,
