It's worth noting the /reason/ for Sun shipping Sendmail, ftpd, etc. as they 
do.  I think that it was an admirable policy in its' day - the mid-nineties.  
The environment for Internet connected networks is so full of toxic traffic 
these day, there are /other/ interruptions to production that I would be more 
concerned about...  Besides, rev numbers of Sendmail are so very independant 
of anything like a Sun release cycle - it seems a bit foolish and quite 
arbitrary to peg a Solaris major number to something like this... Oh well.  
It's /good/ for those who work in securing systems!

You take it in good humor!

The complaining rant was actually directed at Eric Bowser - I know when a 
thread gets nested, and quoted text is emebdded. the result is hard to 
follow.  The fault is mine, for not directing reply to the original.

To Mr. Bowser's credit - he /did/ frame his original "complaint" in 
<uninformed> tags!

Yeah - I got to look into the fedora builds for non-critical boxes.  I have 
been building 'em all on Debian Sid for a couple of years now.  Fedora will 
probably maintain enough compatibility for the commercial release software 
like Veritas and VMWare.
