Just a couple of items, and a few notes.

1)  The ftpd on TSX-11 has been upgraded so that it is using the
wuarchive version of FTPD.  What this means is that you get an entire
directory by saying "get directory.tar"; also, if you say "get
filename.Z", it will automatically compress the file filename and send
it back to you as filename.Z  

2)  When you upload a package, and something identical or similar is
already on TSX-11, *PLEASE* include in your mail to ftp-linux a quick
note about why the version you uploaded is better than the one already
on tsx-11, or how they're different, or why I should take your version
instead of the one we already have.  It makes things a lot easier when
we don't have to unpack an already existing "zip" tar file to compare it
against the version of "zip" which someone just recently uploaded, to
see what the differences are....

3) What with going away soon, I will try to improve my
response time to attending to things sent to ftp-linux.  If you want
something released on an emergency basis, for whatever reason, please
add a CC: to the message that mentions "" explicitly, and
tell me why you want it done ASAP.

Anyway, here are the new files:

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
