FUNET had problems - I guees they were upgrading/changing the ftp daemon
software. As part of the problem it managed to forget Linus' user/password
so he couldn't upload 2.0.8. Its as simple as that.

I tried logging on to FUNET yesterday, and all the usual greetings were gone.
They're back now, so hopefully everything else is fixed again.
