We are all human. I would be a lot worse off if it wasn't for slashdot
og freshmeat, for instance. Yes, they might be aware, but they may also
be busy on other things and not have though about this. Still trying to

I am sure that is THIS list, right? suse-linux-e? I am mentioning that
suse-announce-e is pretty dead an that it is a shame. I am doing it here
because it's my belief that only suse should post to the announce-list.
It's just a pitty they rarely do, ok?

I know, and I just checked the backlog of suse-announce-e. There is a
total of one message: The announcement of Java WorkShop 2.0 for Linux. A
few scripts could improve the usefulness of suse-announce-e a LOT!
That's all I'm saying, if you'll let me!

I know, but I'm guessing there's a reason that S.u.S.E. makes binaries
available at their own site under suse_update, even if it's only that
they take the docs from the source and put them in
/usr/doc/packages/.... . It would be nice if you didn't have to strafe
around to see if anything new was there, which a better exploitation (in
a good sense) of suse-announce-e would accomplish.
If I'm harsh above, I don't mean to be. I'm just trying to get my point
To get out of this list, please send email to majordomo@xxxxxxxx with
