Description Andrew Savchenko gentoo-dev 2012-06-22 14:44:09 UTC

I'm presenting new full source and rsync mirror hosted at Russia, Moscow, National Research Nuclear University "MEPhI".

It is a fully synced full source and rsync mirror. We're serving both ftp and rsync protocols. Our bandwidth for mirror service is about 1Gbps. We're ready to server about 30 rsync and 30 ftp users ATM, this may change in future in both directions depending on the actual system load.

Http support was also added:

Numeber of ftp users increased.

Hello. On behalf of the mirror-admin team, I want to apologize for not getting back to your bug report. At this time, we are closing ALL new mirror request bugs.

The Gentoo Linux Infrastructure team and the mirror-admin team have found that a plethora of community mirrors exist and adding more requires an exponential amount time from us then we have available. As such, this becomes a more poor user experience than desired because the team cannot keep up. The Gentoo Linux project is not contrained in hardware resources and does not need anymore mirrors (even if your request is for a country that is not represented currently).

Thanks for understanding and thank you for your interest.
With regards,

Any reconsideration?

I see a recently updated mirror page:

If no new mirrors are needed, please consider updating on-line docs as well.
