View Full Version : [all variants] REMINDER: Don't post unofficial final 8.10 downloads

October 30th, 2008, 02:25 AM
Just a quick reminder as we approach the release of Intrepid:

Please do not link to (what you think, or what may be) "final" Intrepid ISO download locations, until it is officially announced at www.ubuntu.com or to the mailing lists as the release. I say this for two reasons:

(1) If there is a last minute emergency problem with the CD, this is going to create chaos and confusion everywhere.

(2) The archive admins give some headtime for mirrors to propagate CD images out before unleashing them to everyone. If everyone goes and steals CD images from those servers, that's going to create a huge burden and interfere with everyone else's ability to get their Ubuntu on time.

Let's try to be civil, considerate, and responsible. :)
