And sendmail. still. hmmm.
Over lunch with senior director of engineering at RH a wee bit back, we were
talking about redhat (or more precisly, why i didn't like it ;p), i told him
sendmail and wu-ftp shipping as default for redhat (back in 6.x) has made the
internet a messier place, 'cause of all those rooted redhat boxes ;), and
when the hell they would change this...
He replied they are planning on moving to somethign more sensible (as he also
dislikes sendmail), but it's a matter of engineering the packages,
compatibility, and also what people expect to find - so maybe *one* day it
will appear with exim and proftpd by default ;)
so maybe they are forgiven for the time being in my books - imagine all the
companies who use sendmail, upgrade to a new version of redhat, and find
exim. *gasp!* i would hate to imagine those poor sa's who have spent years
getting their heads around sendmail.cf's (or more likely, randomly getting
the right settings by luck) to be greeted by a nice simple exim config ;)
