not system related
Comment 1 Ken Tossell 2003-06-27 13:59:53 UTC
All that this needs is for Mailman to be pushed to the mirror system...
Comment 2 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-06-28 09:04:23 UTC
why do you think this is a blocker ?
SRC_URI is valid.

this should be closed as invalid, since GENTOO_MIRRORS is just a feature
normaly every source file should be downloaded from the orginal site
Comment 3 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-06-28 09:04:41 UTC
added file
Comment 4 Ken Tossell 2003-06-28 09:47:15 UTC
this is a blocker because the *stable* ebuild of a major package is broken!

and about the mirrors, portage almost *never* downloads files from the original site. it's always the mirror system.
Comment 5 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-06-28 10:29:16 UTC
no this is NOT a blocker.

just set GENTOO_MIRRORS="" and portage downloads every source from its original site

if there's any mirror set, portage first tries to download the package from GENTOO_MIRRORS, after that from SRC_URI.
