While browsing the ftp, I see 9.0 ISOs in a `releases' directory. Do you expect me to consult freebsd-announce@, verify the signature of the announce, the hash of the ISOs, etc. to consider that 9.0 has been released ? No, I see 9.0 ISOs in a `releases' directory, I assume it has been released, whatever your spreading process is. Btw, none of the CHECKSUMS files are signed on the FTP. - Arnaud _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
