Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"a/aaa_base-8.1.0-i386-2.tgz: "Bumped version number to Slackware 8.1-rc2."

n/sendmail-8.12.3-i386-5.tgz: Ship an initial (empty) /etc/mail/access and /etc/mail/access.db -- without these mail won't flow if the SMTP+ACCESS config file is used. Also, chmod several files in /etc/mail as well as /var/run/sendmail.pid to thwart file locking DoS attacks..."
