Yes, I am. However, I would not call Mandrake's new packages "quick" by 
any commonly used metric. Their packages dropped on 06/22, five full 
days after Apache had the new version out. That was three days slower 
than Redhat. Five days is a long time, especially seeing as how 
GOBBLES's 'sploit had been out for 2.5 of them.
