Sendmail packages for current 32-bit and 64-bit mixed up?


A friend of mine noticed me of this:

Changelog files:

32-bit
extra/sendmail/sendmail-8.16.1-i586-1.txz: Upgraded.
extra/sendmail/sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.

64-bit
extra/sendmail/sendmail-8.16.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
extra/sendmail/sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.

But, there's no updated package found via FTP for 32-bit
List I see is:

sendmail-cf-8.15.2-noarch-3.txz 08-May-2018 12:49 114K Details

For 64-bit it looks like this:
sendmail-8.16.1-i586-1.txz 05-Jul-2020 19:37 1.0M Details

sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txz 05-Jul-2020 19:37 114K Details

Any reason for this?

The sendmail and sendmail-cf packages were removed and moved to extra.

Edit:
that happened on Nov. 17 2017

Z80 thanks for reply and info.

But I may have been less clear with my info on what led to the question.

I'll try be more specific...

Why is there a i586 package in x86_64 that is updated to a newer version, when there's no such package available for that newer version for 32-bit? Has it been placed in wrong folder?

Hope that makes better sense

According to the official changelog it should be x86-64 and not i586.
So you either installed a wrong package in the past or the package was misplaced (maybe only on the mirror you use?).

That's exactly my point

Hence my question.

It's the content of the folders that made me asking if something went wrong.

current 32-bit is not containing the updated package for latest version (see below).
current 64-bit is containing both i586 and x86_64 of latest version (see below).

URL for 64-bit
ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/s...xtra/sendmail/
is listing:

File:README 1 KB 11/15/17 1:00:00 AM GMT+1
File:sendmail-8.16.1-i586-1.txt 1 KB 7/5/20 9:37:00 PM GMT+2
File:sendmail-8.16.1-i586-1.txz 1026 KB 7/5/20 9:37:00 PM GMT+2
File:sendmail-8.16.1-i586-1.txz.asc 1 KB 7/5/20 9:37:00 PM GMT+2
File:sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txt 1 KB 7/5/20 9:37:00 PM GMT+2
File:sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txz 114 KB 7/5/20 9:37:00 PM GMT+2
File:sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txz.asc 1 KB 7/5/20 9:37:00 PM GMT+2

And the same listing for 32-bit looks like this (note the date AND version):
ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/s...xtra/sendmail/

README 1 KB 11/15/17 1:00:00 AM GMT+1
File:sendmail-8.15.2-i586-3.txt 1 KB 5/8/18 2:00:00 AM GMT+2
File:sendmail-8.15.2-i586-3.txz 1017 KB 5/8/18 2:00:00 AM GMT+2
File:sendmail-8.15.2-i586-3.txz.asc 1 KB 5/8/18 2:00:00 AM GMT+2
File:sendmail-cf-8.15.2-noarch-3.txt 1 KB 5/8/18 2:00:00 AM GMT+2
File:sendmail-cf-8.15.2-noarch-3.txz 115 KB 5/8/18 2:00:00 AM GMT+2
File:sendmail-cf-8.15.2-noarch-3.txz.asc 1 KB 5/8/18 2:00:00 AM GMT+2

ChangeLog for 32-bit says it should be version 8.16.1

Sun Jul 5 19:43:59 UTC 2020
extra/sendmail/sendmail-8.16.1-i586-1.txz: Upgraded.
extra/sendmail/sendmail-cf-8.16.1-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.

Edit:
And if you go to https://packages.slackware.com/
search for sendmail using slackware-current as release.

This is also listing the old version.

If you on the other hand select slackware64-current as release,
it'll list the correct version.
