Hi Theo,

the openssh packages were buggy. A bit too buggy: the rcsshd symlink was
broken, and some of the features were either not present or not working.
Jiri, our package maintainer for the openssh package, made new packages
that were built and put on the ftp server before the weekend. We will
reissue the announcement by the beginning of the week.

The checksums that you mentioned were right. Unfortunately, the source
rpms aren't there yet. And what puzzles me is that the build-number is
still 0.

3219bf7853c2c27056ec502b5fd3345c 6.4/sec1/openssh-2.3.0p1-0.i386.rpm
ce12abcff3dec118ceabe62e6cd1e090 7.0/sec1/openssh-2.3.0p1-0.i386.rpm

You see, plenty to do for a weekend. :-]

Thanks,
Roman.
