LMDE 4 Final

Post by DrTeeth »

Why is this available for download from https://www.linuxcompatible.org/story/l ... -released/ and not from the official Mint site (yet)?

Cheers

Because the mirrors around the globe are still syncing. When complete, the official announcement is made, and evident on the LM website.

Thanks for your answer. It still does not look right when it appears elsewhere first. I think Mint should wait until it is available from official channels first before disseminating to other sites.

I agree with you.

I see your point, but that's how the mirroring process works. Being responsible, Linux Mint doesn't make the official announcement until all the mirrors have synced. If some entity of less integrity decides to make an announcement on their own, it's certainly unfortunate, and makes them look bad.

I wonder where they get their copy of the file if not from Mint itself?

In the example you provided, that website isn't hosting the files themselves. If you look at the end of the article, all they're doing is posting links to other mirrors which have already synced.

As always, I suggest waiting for the official announcements to ensure that everyone is getting what's intended as intended.

From a mirror.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

Another option is that we can all just wait for the official announcement so as to not interfere with the mirrors syncing from the source.
