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!

To Mr. Bowser's credit - he /did/ frame his original "complaint" in

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.
