I don't really know how to report this problem, so I'm filing a bug
against rawhide redhat-release. If there's a better way, and I suspect
there is, please let me know so I'll know what to do in the future.
On 2000/02/20, I downloaded a bunch of rpms from
including rawhide-release-20000218-1.noarch.rpm .
Today (2000/02/24), I checked the same directory and found that the files
I downloaded on 2000/02/20 were gone, seemingly replaced by older versions
of those files, including rawhide-release-20000212-1.noarch.rpm . I
used ncftp-3.0beta21-3 on my rawhide 20000218 system connected to
a cable modem: c130441-j.smateo1.sfba.home.com (22.214.171.124).
So I'm left wondering if this is:
- A server/network glitch by which one of the servers supporting
rawhide.redhat.com got updated with out-of-date bits, or
- An intentional withdrawal of the 20000218 rawhide rpms, due
presumably to some sort of problems, and a reversion to the
2000/02/12 rawhide rpms. This seems unlikely to me, but if
something like this were to happen, is there a Web page
that I could check somewhere that would have status like this,
so I wouldn't have to annoy you by filing a bug like this one?
I believe it's the first of your suggestions (we have
multiple servers); we'll get
this sorted out.
As of 2000/02/28, I'm still seeing the same behavior reported in the original
bug. I'm reopening this bug not as a way of trying to be annoying, but just as
a hopefully-efficient way to communicate that the reported problem of
stale-bits-on-some-servers has not yet been resolved. For example, I'm
still seeing a directory containing rawhide-release-20000212-1.noarch.rpm .
This should be fixed by now, I hope.
Sorry about the delay before closing the bug...
