After wiping the "old" reactos.org box (the one at IP 22.214.171.124) and
reinstalling Apache so I can use it for other projects I found that there
are still some hostnames referring to the "old" box:
For the moment, I've set up redirection for (www.)reactos.de/.pl to
www.reactos.org/?lang=de/pl and I have reloaded the scripts for
links.reactos.org. I will terminate that service at the end of the month, so
please update DNS before that.
The critical one is links.reactos.org. The getfirefox applet will download
Firefox using the link http://links.reactos.org/getfirefox. The script
behind that URL will redirect to the "real" Firefox download location. This
was done so it was possible to update the script to newer Firefox versions
when they became available, without the need to recompile and redistribute
getfirefox. Same thing is happening for the Mozilla ActiveX control. When
links.reactos.org doesn't work anymore, this means getfirefox and the
automatic Mozilla ActiveX download will cease to work. I assume the scripts
were transferred already during the website move, if not I can provide them.
Oh, and please fix the alias for root at www.reactos.org, it still points to my
email address. I'm not interested in receiving that mail, a little while ago
there was an error in a script somewhere, causing it to send me an email
every ten minutes, 24 hours per day....
If there's a need to communicate about this, please email me directly, after
this email gets through I'm unsubscribing again.
