It's about as significant as your commentary.

Recommend reloading this thread about a year from now just to see just how significant a slackware.com outage was.

This thread should be kept open for its original purpose, which is news.
I agree that vtel57's blog post did not cause distress for Slackware team members including Pat. There are some who ran away with twisted-around versions of that blog post and those are the ones causing damage if any. Eric's post was sincere and I have no issues at all with that, or his later comments.

As for this thread, it only serves as a means to let the discussion fester. All that should be said, has been said. There is no "news" to be had here.

I do not see a problem here using the posted information in reference to 'Caitlyn'.

Before this thread is closed, I need to say this.

It's time to congratulate Eric on maintaining such an exemplary level of transparency. I mean, can you imagine anyone else publically admitting that financial issues have anything to do with a server outage, even if it's true?

It's also time to congratulate Pat for having spent this difficult time delivering what his actual market wants. Not only did he fix the server and the store, he also pushed updates to -current during this time.

And it's time to congratulate the maintainers of Slackware's mirrors, who kept Slackware available so that no-one was inconvenienced by anything other than worry.

I'm a relative newcomer to Slackware; I've run Slackware for 8 years. Over the years I've tried a variety of distros and BSDs. Slackware is home to me. Slackware continues to deliver legendary stability, security, and excellent applications.
I get a really good chuckle when I read the doom and gloom bloggers, it reminds me a lot of some tabloids I could name.
Slackware is a rock.

The web server is still a work in progress so expect further interruptions.

Be kind to it and let's not freak out if it goes down again.

Thanks
