[Bug admin/2403] New: Download links

konrad.schwarz at siemens dot com
I was trying to download the glibc-latest.tar.bz2 from the website. When it
downloaded it ended up being glibc-ports-20060220. I would of assumed that
glibc-latest.tar.bz2 would of been glibc-20060220.tar.bz2
glibc-2.3-latest.tar.bz2 would of been glibc-2.3-20060220.tar.bz2

I would also recommend that glibc-ports-latest.tar.bz2 should be created.
Here's my DL record to show the issues.

wget -q ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/glibc/snapshots/glibc-latest.tar.bz2
tar tf glibc-latest.tar.bz2 | head -n 1
glibc-ports-20060220/

I confirmed this is still true on 20060227. I guess there is a script bug on the
server that prepares these tarballs such that it links to the wrong thing.
Perhaps something like

ln -s glibc-20060227.tar.bz2 glibc-latest.tar.bz2
ln -s glibc-ports-20060227.tar.bz2 glibc-latest.tar.bz2
                                         ^^^^ error here

such that there should be a glibc-ports-latest.tar.bz2 but there is not?

Oops, my bad.  I've fixed the snapshot script.

The fix committed by Roland should take effect when the snapshot occurs
today/tonight. Until then people can just go to
ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/glibc/snapshots
and determine manually what the latest is I imagine.
