Message Thanks for the info.

I have been looking at adding it myself, Ive got a
couple of ideas, on "quick and dirty" authentication
(I would like to pre-authorize users, i.e. send em a
username and pass to access the server) Ill probably
give em a shot later this week, if they work (big if)
I will of course send patches to the list.

As far as charging for the updates, I am charging for
updates to RHEL 3 (AS and ES) I would glady provide
them for free for someone to mirror (then I wouldnt
have to get charged for the BW) BUT as it is now, not
only do I get charged for bandwith , but my time to
compile all the damm things (61 in the last 2 days)

Thats the beauty of GPL software IMHO, the software is
free but it still leaves room for someone to make a
"living" off the support and use of it.
