Description Rasmus Brogger 2005-08-11 03:39:40 UTC
Due to quite a few requests to reopen our gentoo mirror, I've completed sync of
the Gentoo mirror achive today. 
The mirror is located at: (or just /gentoo for
historcal reasons). Ftp access will not be avaiable.
The server is connected with 100 mbit/s and has no traffic limitations.
Currently I'm excluding the historical archive. The server is set to sync twice
a day.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Henrik Brix Andersen 2005-08-11 03:50:50 UTC
Does this mirror support IPv6?

Is the initial rsync still in progress? The 2005.1 release files aren't there...
Comment 2 Rasmus Brogger 2005-08-11 03:58:18 UTC
It should support IPv6, I haven't tested it however.
IPv6 is only used for some NetBSD services the server is hosting, but Apache is
configured to use IPv6. However I can't test if the site works on IPv6 currently.

The final update process seems to take quite a while longer than expected. The
throughput to the mastermirror is about 10-15 kB/s, so there'll be a small
delay. I'll update this ticket once the mirror is synced.
Comment 3 Henrik Brix Andersen 2005-08-11 04:10:03 UTC
I can confirm that the mirror works with IPv6.
Comment 4 Rasmus Brogger 2005-08-12 04:21:09 UTC
Should be fully updated now. I'm currently using to
mirror from.

I am about to begin the process of moving back to my university, at which point
I will be able to more completely deal with mirror bugs. This should be
happening within the next 7-8 days. At that point I will be attempting to clear
up all the outstanding mirror bugs. Thanks for your patience.

Jeffrey, any progress on this?
Comment 7 Jeffrey Forman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-02 06:36:14 UTC
Thanks for helping out Gentoo. I have added your mirror to our list at Please start synching from as the email I have sent to you instructs. We would
like you to subscribe to the gentoo-mirrors Mailing List by sending an email to, as we send out notifications of
updates, releases, and changes in policy to the mirrors.  Once again, thanks for
the hardware and bandwidth!

For Infrastructure,

I've updated the rsync host in the sync script and confirmed that it works.

I think this repport can be closed.
