> ERROR 403: Forbidden.

O.K... My fubar... New site... etc., etc.

I'll put a page there so the server knows what to do...
Comment 4 Greg Houlette 2005-01-05 16:56:51 EST
Well... that was interesting...

My hosting provider and I have been in a cage match about who should
fix what.  First I had to deal with the stupid 32 character filename
limit.  Geez!  Even Windoze95 had support for long file names...

Now the issue is the 403 error from serving up *_ANY_* non-graphical
binary file via HTTP... (I've told them it is a server configuration
issue, they told me that I should just serve them from the FTP side)

I pointed out to them that I could download the RPMs via HTTP from
the management console (from which I uploaded them as well).

Their response?  "We will look into this and reply you soon"

In the meantime, I've changed the URL here to a TinyURLized version.
(Hope you client can handle a HTTP->FTP redirect...)

Comment 6 Michael Schwendt 2005-01-07 03:32:33 EST
Imported into CVS as rkhunter-1.1.9-1 because the 0.fdr prefix is no
longer used. Moved the "Packager" entry into the %changelog where it
Comment 7 Greg Houlette 2005-01-07 08:53:51 EST
Seems reasonable.  Pulled down the mod'ed .spec file and rebuilt both
source and binary RPMs to verify release change did not break anything.
(I didn't really expect it would)  Uploaded new files to server.

What's next?  Does it get build automatically from CVS?
Comment 8 Michael Schwendt 2005-01-07 11:45:19 EST
No automated builds yet, since this is pre-Extras. Seth Vidal triggers
FC3 builds when you post to fedora-extras-list.
Comment 9 Greg Houlette 2005-01-07 23:48:46 EST
Do we have a template for fedora-extras-list announcements?
Do we just use fedora-pkgannfmt?

(BTW, my hosting provider got 'pinned to the mat' this afternoon.
"We were denying access to a specific file type but instead we
were stopping any file ending with pm.")

ERROR 403: Forbidden. FIXED
Comment 10 Michael Schwendt 2005-01-08 03:08:48 EST
There's an automated "Recent Packages" news feed:

fedora-extras-list is for general discussion.

fedora-extras-announce-list is not in use yet. Haven't seen a single
package announcement there.
