> * scribe has been cleaned up and almost entirely re-written
> * support for gpg checking of sorcery and grimoire tarballs
Woo hoo! That's awesome!
> * init and xinetd script handling has been re-written per bug 1817
> And probably lots of other stuff im forgetting...
Thanks for all the hard work making Source Mage a better distro.
Now if i'll just get up off my lazy butt and write the installer ;)
One login to rule them all, one login to find them. One login to bring them all, and in the web bind them.
