rash release? I've asked the first time when, in September? I haven't seen
the sun for a month, but I thinks its December by now. The 3.0.24 build on
my klecker page works just fine, because when I built it, there weren't many
changes, except for people trying to break documentation, and the m68k fix.
If it were possible, we could use just this, but then arches would be out of
sync. I guess by breaking some rules, I could still get the fix for m68k in,
but I guess its not worth it, imagine how many people had to update their
another-evil-debian-problem-and-here-comes-my-clever-fix webpage, plus I
have no access to my box at the moment... and you're right, it might be too
late now, although I did not check the changelog if there actually were any
changes in bf?

In case anybody should be waiting for new kernels on m68k, don't...

<no sarcasm>Good luck with your exams, they are of course more important!
