We are pleased to announce that Rocky Linux 8.8 is available for mirrors to sync from our mirror nodes in the US and
Please note the fra nodes have a different rsync module layout which will be standardized in a future release. If you
have already been using the frankfurt node, there is nothing you need to change.
The artifacts available to mirrors are to be kept from the public in accordance with our bitflip procedure until the
release has been thoroughly tested. If all goes well with tests, we intend to perform the bitflip (and release Rocky
8.8) tomorrow, on Friday, May 19th, 2023, during the afternoon of US business hours (East Coast). If anything
changes to this affect, I will send a follow up email.
Please see the following listing of directory sizes for this release. All artifacts should be hardlinked.
