Slackware changelog "master source"


In the recent thread "slackpkg updates - nothing for 4 days", I noticed the "Mon Jun 7 18:53:49 UTC 2021" update highlighted by users dr.s and marav.

When I read it, I checked http://www.slackware.com/changelog/c...php?cpu=x86_64 and "Mon Jun 7" update wasn't there. It appeared later during the day.

Before this, I was naively thinking that www.slackware.com/changelog/ was the changelog source, then copied to mirrors.

But it looks like that, at least, slackware.osuosl.org (which I assumed was a mirror) was updated significantly before slackware.com.

So what is the "master source" of Slackware changelog? What is the site updated by Pat Volkerding himself and then mirrored to other locations (including slackware.com)?

I'm not sure if it's ever been confirmed, but I believe the OSUOSL mirror is the primary one. If you look under the links for the changelog, there are direct links to the OSUOSL mirror.

OSUOSL is the master source for the ChangeLog - it is the primary host for the Slackware repositories.

I believe the change log on the website is updated periodically rather than reflective of that on OSUOSL.
