You would think so, wouldn't you. I think maybe the ".cf" is a typo.

And it's a lot older than 9. It's been part of my RH install ritual
since Postfix first appeared, I think, 7.0?? That and getting rid of
ISDN and PPP were my main uses of the individual pkgs option.

Now it's:
su -
service sendmail stop
rpm -e sendmail
chkconfig -add postfix

And ISDN and PPP are still in there...

But as has been said, these are small points. Overall, an excellent job.
Thank you all very much, Fedora Group.
