If the email had just been fabricated and such had been specified then everyone would have been chortling away happily. I do think it's improved the quantity of contributions to drobe though which is always good. A more natural (/intuitive or whatever the word) policy on email would be anything is publishable unless otherwise specified but every effort will be made to contact the sender to let them know beforehand and allow them to add the "not to be published" tag afterwards. It's considered bad practice to publish private emails without permission on newsgroups and mailing lists, and with good reason. Anyway, back to work!

Community-produced RISC OS 5.14 in final testing A RISC OS 5 ROM image produced from RISC OS Open's shared source project and code contributed by volunteer programmers has been submitted to Castle for testing. Once it has passed a round of QA, Castle, aka Iyonix Ltd, is expected to ship the new ROM image to end users. A copy of the ROM image, which is suitable for XScale-powered Iyonix computers, is available for download now for anyone crazy enough to test it on their hardware. ROOL's Steve Revill said: "This ROM build includes a snapshot of all the latest updates and submissions to the shared source project from the community." 14 comments, latest by jlavallin on 14/12/08 10:36AM.
