Thanks ...

The faq states that normal releases of security errata will be within 72
hours and that update sets (like EL4 update 2) will be completed within
2 weeks ... 


Updates that did not include dependencies from the Bugfix and
Enhancement packages included in the update 2 update set were released
within 72 hours ... the others are rolled into the 4.2 update (the aka -
update 2 release set).  2 weeks will be 19 October (6 days from now).

We are well within the guidelines stated.

See how long it takes for the other rebuild projects to release a
bootable ISO and all the updates for the el4 update 2 release cycle :)

Then see how many do that for 6 different arches {that would be zero} :)

Our announcement will follow shortly for all our arches (i386, x86_64,
s390, s390x, ia64, alpha) and the el4 update 2 set.

Our mirrors are currently buried ... as one would expect when syncing
out 6 arches for CentOS-4.2 and some of he CentOS-3.6 tree as well.  It
may take 1 to 2 days for this to become available on all mirrors.

Many thanks go out to the whole CentOS-4 development team for all the
hard work and testing to get all these arches out a week early ...
thanks Karanbir and Pasi.
