In case you hadn’t read the news, Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 updates are now available again through the mirrors.
Read release engineer Jesse Keating’s announcement for more information on the new signing key, and a summary of what you need to do (answer: very little, thanks to a lot of hard work by a lot of Fedora community members). You’ll also find complete instructions and details on the wiki, information on why we’re switching to a new package signing key, and tips for use in the unlikely event something goes wrong.
Thank you to all the hard working Fedora developers, system administrators, and release engineers for getting things back into shape. You guys rock hard. And thank you also to our community for your patience and steadfastness.
After going through this process, you’ll receive all the various bug fixes, enhancements, and security patches that Fedora community members have been stacking up for your dining pleasure. (I see among them are things like OpenOffice.org updates, so the download is fairly sizable.) As always, 100% free and open source — eat all you care to, we’ll make more. And remember that if you’re interested in making a transition from the epicurean to the culinary — that is, becoming a chef — we’re open all hours.
