We would like to be a new full mirror for gentoo. We rsync'd the server with the ftp on the mirror documentation and set up a crontab to update it every 4 hours, the mirror is accessible via HTTP and FTP. http://gentoo.fiber-hosting.com and ftp://gentoo.fiber-hosting.com
The server is on a gigabit uplink and its running Hardened Gentoo.

15:52 < astinus> its now 15:52 GMT
15:52 < astinus> which means its not syncing every four hours.
15:52 ~~~ astinus chuckles
16:01 < jlsn> astinus: you ever get laid? why are you hating? im just trying to help out with a new
mirror and im told 'you fail' ? nice attitude.
16:01 < jlsn> *sigh*. fail. lol, it looks like you guys got a hater on board, we might as well go
mirror freebsd or something. You dont need a new mirror anyway.

16:02 < astinus> wow, someone doesn't take tongue-in-cheek very well
The new mirror is appreciated, but please bear in mind up until 2-3 weeks ago the wait time to be added was *months* -- we're a volunteer effort, we cannot move heaven and earth and make things happen in ~24 hours usually.
Plus if there's no laughter and comedy, where's the motivation?
I'll resolve this as LATER: if you do decide to keep mirroring Gentoo Linux then please make sure it's syncing every four hours -- using something like 'rsync.de.gentoo.org' is a good bet as they're pretty fast and up-to-date.
if you like to you can check it again, i wasn't syncing the portage tree, just the distfiles,releases,snapshots,exp. stuff. i added a /gentoo-portage directory and /gentoo where its syncing the portage tree now and the rest of the things. Also providing rsync access to them.
My apologies for flipping out earlier.
This is not a critical issue. And you'll have to wait, since there are other mirrors before yours, until some weeks ago there was some bugs from august.
Please note that i can't do anything, i'm just telling you that you'll have to wait a lot.

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/source_mirrors.xml << suggests that mirrors must be updated every four hours -- please could you check your cron jobs for me?
The problem before wasn't that you don't have gentoo-portage, rather that the mirror is not syncing every 4 hours as required; if you want to mirror gentoo-portage too that'd be fantastic, that needs to sync every 30 minutes though!

Okay, this one definitely needs fixing.

and this one is rsync1.us having a bad hair day :)
Drop a note when you've had a chance to look at the first issue and I'll perform a couple more timestamp.chk verifications before adding you.
Hi, thanks for checking out the server. I'm using rsync.de.gentoo.org for gentoo-portage and distro.ibiblio.org for gentoo tree. I believe i've fixed the cron jobs to run as required for both sync's. Please run some more checks and let me know.
Alex, one more thing... i dont know if it matters, but the server's timezone is set to EST.
