Just because a web server starts to glitch does not mean the data is not there. ftp.slackware.com works fine; its all there. The mirrors work fine and are updated to within a few days. So www.slackware.com burps and everyone is up in arms, despite evidence to the contrary.

When did Slackers get this uptight and panicky?

So lets all start panicking now as the domain name is set to expire *soon*

Any news on this? I was using the 32-bit Changelog page to track security updates, but it's not there anymore...

Mon Apr 23 18:18:31 UTC 2012 patches/packages/openssl-0.9.8v-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. Fixes some potentially exploitable buffer overflows. Thanks to Tavis Ormandy, Google Security Team, for discovering this issue and to Adam Langley <agl@chromium.org> for fixing it. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename...=CVE-2012-2110 (* Security fix *) patches/packages/openssl-solibs-0.9.8v-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. Fixes some potentially exploitable buffer overflows. Thanks to Tavis Ormandy, Google Security Team, for discovering this issue and to Adam Langley <agl@chromium.org> for fixing it. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename...=CVE-2012-2110 (* Security fix *) extra/wicd/wicd-1.7.2.1-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. This fixes a local privilege escalation that allows a user to set arbitrary pre/post-connection scripts through D-Bus which are then executed as the wicd user (generally root). For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename...=CVE-2012-2095 Thanks to dapal for the workaround allowing us to skip the pybabel requirement (for now), and to Robby Workman for the script update. (* Security fix *)
Now can we all stop whining please?

Well, NO!
The regular users of Slackware may know about the mirrors, but new users and those who would think, heaven forbid, the correct and most likely place to find the most recent information about the Slackware distribution would be, surprise, slackware.com, would be wrong. Once they find out that Slackware.com is not being maintained, what sort of opinion would they have of Slackware?

As of just a few minutes ago:

@ottavio:

I know about the mirrors. I'm not whining about anything, including the server problem. Obviously a link has been mistakenly removed from the page and I'm pointing it out.

It has been this way for quite a while. Long before the server went down a week or so ago. Ditto the 32 bit -current change log being updated, but not the 64 bit -current change log. Again, I'm speaking of the changelogs on slackware.com, not the mirrors.
