For anyone that cares, I have a resonably recent snapshot available at
When I say recent, I don't think many changes have been made since then,
and I'm happy to re-snapshot when there are.
This includes packages for Debian Sarge and Sid, and Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 3. The latter should also work on nd Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4,
Cent OS4, recent Fedora and the like. Actually, this version is
currently in Debian, though I think it is stuck in unstable for
some minor packaging reasons that I will address shortly.
Bugs in those packges are probably still present in CVS,
The linux-ha-dev list is an appropriate place for discussion.
