Please note it may take up to 48 hours for mirrors to finish syncing,
during this time you may experience problems.

There have been an enormous number  of changes implemented to ensure the Koozali Sme Server way is fully implemented in Koozali SME Server 10. They have are far reaching as to how the server is managed and maintained, the number of changes is far to many to try and list, suffice to say long live "Justine".


About SME Server SME Server is the leading Linux distribution for small
and medium enterprises. SME Server is brought to you by Koozali
Foundation, Inc., a non-profit corporation that exists to provide
marketing and legal support for SME Server.

SME Server is freely available under the GNU General Public License and
is only possible through the efforts of the SME Server community.

However, the availability and quality of SME Server is dependent on
meeting our expenses, such as hosting costs, server hardware, etc.

As such, we ask for a donation to offset costs and fund further development.
a) If you are a school, a church, a non-profit organization or an
individual using SME Server for private purposes, we would appreciate
you to contribute within your means toward the costs associated with
hosting, maintenance and development.
b) If you are a company or an integrator and you are deploying SME
Server in the course of your work to generate revenue, we expect you to
make a donation commensurate with the level of revenue you generate and
the number of servers your have in the field. Please, help the project
Please visit https://wiki.koozali.org/Donate to donate.

Koozali Inc is happy to supply an invoice for any donations received,
simply email treasurer at koozali.org

Justine = "Just in time" ?

Internal joke.

We ought to award a prize for the correct guess :lol:
1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.
