	     Lately At Distrowatch

In case you did not notice I am not reporting most development versions
of distribution nor even Unix release versions.


2022-11-21 	NEW • Distribution Release: Oracle Linux 8.7
	Simon Coter has announced the availability of Oracle Linux 8.7, an 
updated release of Oracle's Linux distribution (its legacy 8.x branch) 
built from source packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
I hold no cards for this very complete release which apparently can
deal with older systems as well is its is 11,504 MB
I say that because I check the package list and find the following
>  systemd-239-68.0.1.el8.i686.rpm
>  systemd-239-68.0.1.el8.x86_64.rpm
