    3232`prefix`. :ref:`prefixes` explains prefixes and how to use them. It is best to
    3333have a `prefix` for each different version of RTEMS you are using. If you are
    34 using RTEMS 4.11 in production it is not a good to install a development
    35 version of 4.12 over the top. A separate `prefix` for each version avoids this.
    36 
    37 Releases download all source packages from the RTEMS FTP server. Hosting all
    38 the source on the RTEMS FTP server ensures the source is present for the like
    39 of the release on the RTEMS FTP server. If there is a problem accessing the
    40 RTEMS FTP the RSB will fall back to the packages home site.
     34using RTEMS 4.11 in production it is **not** a good idea to install a
     35development version of 4.12 over the top by using the same `prefix` as the 4.11
     36build. A separate `prefix` for each version avoids this.

     38Released versions of the RSB download all source code for all packages from the
     39:r:url:`ftp` rather than from the package's home site. Hosting all the source
     40on the :r:url:`ftp` ensures the source is present for the life of the
     41release on the :r:url:`ftp`. If there is a problem accessing the RTEMS FTP
     42the RSB will fall back to the packages home site.
     43
     44The :r:url:`ftp` is hosted at the Oregon State University's The Open Source Lab
     45(http://osuosl.org/). This is a nonprofit organization working for the
     46advancement of open source technologies and RTEMS is very fortunate to hosted
     47here. It has excellent internet access and performance.
