Red Hat committed to keeping UNC Sunsite Linux archives going strong
Research Triangle ParkUnited States, July 27, 1998
Red Hat, Inc. today announced a donation in support of Sunsite, the largest Linux archives, run by UNC MetaLab, a collaborative project of the School of Information and Library Science, the School of Journalism and Mass Communucation and the Office of the Chief Information Officer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Red Hat's donation to Sunsite will be used to fund a researcher to administer, improve, and maintain the Linux portion of the ftp site and the Linux portion of the website. The researcher will work closely with the Linux development and user community to suggest and implement future Linux archive directions.
"We want to keep Sunsite successful because it is good for Linux," said Erik Troan, Chief Developer at Red Hat, Inc. who maintained the Linux archives when he we was a student. "Having someone at UNC Sunsite will not only keep things running smoothly and running well but will also keep the information current and accurate."
In addition to site maintenance, Red Hat's donation will give the researcher from UNC's School of Information and Library Science (SILS) valuable administration experience. Said Barbara Moran, Dean and Professor at UNC, "The School of Information and Library Science is most appreciative to receive a gift that will be of such benefit to our students. SILS is a dynamic and growing entity, much like the Linux OS, so we are good partners."
