Slackware 14.1 Released!
By rworkman on 2013-11-07

I guess this will be a popular place for a few weeks :-) If you're looking for the ISO images, please be patient - the mirrors will need a bit of time to get them all synced. On the other hand, if you're a mirror admin, check your email. If you didn't get an email, then it's because I don't have your address, so write to me. Here's the TL;DR version of the mail:

1) Place the ISOs in the directory corresponding to toplevel pub/slackware/
   on your mirror, e.g. you would have something like this:
     pub/slackware/slackware-current/       <-- file tree
     pub/slackware/slackware64-current/     <-- file tree
     pub/slackware/slackware-14.1/          <-- file tree
     pub/slackware/slackware-14.1-iso/      <-- ISO images
     pub/slackware/slackware64-14.1/        <-- file tree
     pub/slackware/slackware64-14.1-iso/    <-- ISO images
   This is what you used to see on the OSUOSL mirror, but the only the
   checksums and signatures were in there; you had to obtain the actual
   ISOs from elsewhere.  This approach will work fine; you can add an
   --exclude "*-iso/"  line to your mirroring scripts, so long as you
   are okay with manually grabbing ISOs after every release.

2) Place the ISOs in a "slackware-iso/" directory inside the toplevel
   pub/slackware/ on your mirror, e.g. something like this:
     pub/slackware/slackware-current/
     pub/slackware/slackware64-current/
     pub/slackware/slackware-14.1/
     pub/slackware/slackware64-14.1/
     pub/slackware/slackware-iso/slackware-14.1-iso/
     pub/slackware/slackware-iso/slackware64-14.1-iso/
   This will require you to exclude "slackware-iso/" in your rsync script,
   and it would still require manually grabbing ISOs after every release.
Mirror admins: if you want to have the ISO images but you are unable to find a reliable source to get them, contact me.
