That page just says:
Red Hat remains excited about the open development process announced
on Monday. We're currently reworking the content of this site to clarify
questions people have raised since our announcement. We'll have the site
restored as soon as possible.
and has a bunch of links to "Severn" mirrors, which seems to be Red Hat 10
beta, and links to some "RHL" mailing lists.
It strikes me odd that they mention an "announcement" that I can't find at
www.redhat.com, and don't provide a link.
The Severn RELEASE-NOTES says:
Red Hat Linux Project Introduction
With this release, the Red Hat Linux product is becoming the Red Hat Linux
Project -- an openly-developed project designed by Red Hat, open for
general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project
objectives. For more information, see the Red Hat Linux Project website:
Sounds like RH is 1. laying off a bunch of development people and 2.
trying to compete with Gentoo and 3. trying to spin it as being more
"open." But that's just my SWAG.
If anyone finds a link to the alleged "announcement" let me know!
n 1: a river in Ontario that flows northeast into Hudson Bay
[syn: Severn, Severm River]
2: a river in England and Wales flowing into the Bristol
Channel; the longest river in Great Britain [syn: Severn,
River Severn, Severn River]
Also a town in Maryland and a . . . village in N. Carolina. Hey, wait.
Where is Red Hat?
