freshrpms


I was reinstalling my redhat 9 box today and found something that made me VERY angry. I wanted to reinstall apt-get, the rpm, and http://freshrpms.net is DOWN! anyone have a link to another place where it's on the web? Also who is responsible for this, someone must "pay."

I have two responses to this:

#1. In addition to contrasutra's response, you should be grateful that the maintainer of freshrpms.net is "aware" enough to participate in the protest against the current situation regarding the European Patent Office. I myself noticed his participation a few days ago myself and was inspired to join in by adding similar notification on WindowsRefund.net. If the EPO votes to endorse software patents, it could be the end of Free Software as we know it. At that point, the content (or lack of) freshrpms.net will be the LEAST of your problems.

#2. freshrpms.net is nothing more that a (great) software repository for the apt4rpm project. Additional sites can be found by looking at the content on apt4rpm.sf.net

Best,
Adam
