hi folks.

i'm glad to announce that the NetBSD project now offers a daily updated
snapshot of the current NetBSD release sources.  this is currently the
`netbsd-1-4' branch.

the directory contains the
extracted sources plus weekly updated tar files.  these files are
created in a similar manner to those in the /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current

a new sup collection called `release' has been created.  inside this
new collection are the same SUP releases you can find in the `current'
collection, excluding the `doc', `pkgsrc' and `xsrc' SUP releases, as
these source have not in the past been branched for a NetBSD release.

the doc/README.sup file has been updated accordingly.

please report any problems you see with the FTP or SUP server.  (note
that for a short time after the normal overnight update the SUP server
was using the `release' files for the `current' collection, but this
has been recitified).
