Fedora Core "Although I hate to do it, it looks like we're going to have to slip Fedora Core 5 test3 by a week. There is an ABI change in the gcc/glibc stack that requires a rebuild of the entire distribution. Given that, there is no way that we'll be able to make a freeze date of Monday. So, test3 will now freeze on Monday, 13 February with a release date of Monday, 20 February."

> All you need to do is simply run "yum update" and you're following rawhide. How is that not easy?

Not so easy when they do a full rebuild like they've just done and you've got close on 2GB of packages to download (and my home ISP quotas bandwidth during peak times...). Still, I boot into FC5T2 between midnight and 1.30am to resume the endless attempts to catchup with the massive rawhide churn in the last week or so ;)

BTW, anyone else noticed that if the FC folks break Rawhide dependencies on a Friday night, they don't get fixed until Monday morning? And they've been doing that pretty well every week since FC5T2 came out!

Fedora folks have weekends too just like the rest of the users
