Is there a reason for the suddenly announced October 1 release date? Anything wrong with October 4 or 5?

I need to test building with the the official 3.5.12 tarballs. As the previous test batch files were not official I have not yet ran a full build of the links. Looks like another all-nighter for the computer.

Barring any unforeseen problems, I'll update my web page with the latest news and the current build scripts.

As agreed, I will post the final 3.5.12 Slackware 12.2 binary packages to someplace at my web site and notify you privately of the link. You then can download them to your site.

For your web site, I was thinking you could add a link just after the Ubuntu Maverick link. That link would be like the others and say "Installation instructions."

When people select that link they would find a link to my web site for build instructions. For people wanting only to download the binary packages, they probably should find both a link to the packages for manual downloading and and a URL for those who use the package manager.

Your site, you decide.

That time I warned several weeks ago about having little time is here. Thus, I'm hoping the dust settles between now and the weekend and we are done with 3.5.12 and I am done with 12.2 support. I am unlikely to get around to testing anything seriously again for a few months.
