FAQ #4
Q: Is it important that I sync my mirror twice an hour?

A: Yes it is important. You do not need to perform the syncs at exactly :00 and :30 but the syncs should take place in each of the following two windows:

:00 to :10
:30 to :40
Additionally, please make sure that your syncs are exactly 30 minutes apart. So, if you schedule the first sync of each hour for :08, please schedule the second sync of the hour for :38.

This refers specifically to the Community Mirror mode of operation, but does not explicitly say so.  Without specifying, this is ambiguous, and contradicts what is said in section 2 about not syncing too frequently.

Reproducible: Always

Expected Results:  
Suggested fix:
change " Is it important that I sync my mirror twice an hour?" to " Is it important that I sync my community rsync mirror twice an hour?"

Thanks, committed!
Comment 2 Chris Brannon (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-02-21 17:00:34 UTC
Fixed in 1.3-r1 and 1.4-r3, both unstable.
Should I push the shared library fix to the stable version?
