well...not to be snide or anything...but does anyone have the sendmail
or bind releases that i'm missing? :)
i only have the 8.8 releases of sendmail, one 8.7 (6 -- i'd like the
rest) and no 8.6 stuff. or earlier. as for bind, i'm much better
off, but if someone could just spot-check my 4.8 series (i've got rel,
1, 2, and 3) and supply me with the 4.7 stuff (and earlier) i'd also
very much appreciate it.
i'm...something of a digital packrat. but i do so love to grovel
through the old tar balls and see when and how things grew.
