I'd like to setup a north american mirror. Who on the team is in charge of such things?
The place I am thinking about setting up the mirror is at http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/
They host many distributions and I think it would be a good solution for a local n.a. mirror.

The foreverlinux.net mirrors were fast on my test download of kde-lite (for my eeepc) and a few files of d-u for my laptops.

speed ranged between 850KB/s and 1.1MB/s.

Bewdy mate! I'll change my sources and try it now.

erm .. well

AARNet repo is only updated when they sync, the regularity of this is not known for sure, i guess u can watch for it .. and im not saying dont use it

cant guarantee it but .. apart from the ISOs

for freshest kernels + fixes its best to use the published deb lines for aptosid, they are 'push' mirrors directly updated by us

btw aarnet do have Debian repos http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/debian/

ALSO: http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/

We experienced a recent power outage which caused the RAID array hosting mirror data to need to be rebuilt. As a result, the mirrored data is temporarily read-only. We hope to resume synchronizing as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Reconstruction of the RAID has completed 77%

no reply yet to my mail

its entirely possible that a spot of social engineering could be useful

like emails in support of aptosid mirror, say from students or staff at u waterloo ...

Thanks to Yellow Fiber Networks. I downloaded an iso and I got these statistics:

Downloaded 525.6 megabytes in 5:52 seconds. (1524.69 KB/s)

It started at 2500KB/s and slowed down to 1524KB/s gradually (I blame Comcast's Powerboost for that)

for using as repo, sure

but this is not a push mirror, and Germany and Austria are well-served already for fast repos

the recommended push mirrors for adding to 'aptosid.list' are listed on the page http://www.aptosid.com/index.php?module ... &pid=2

of course its possibe to use any mirror like this, if you want
unless is listed on the page tho, u must work out the line for yourself

According the DW our distro is "Dormant"
The "problem" with aptosid is that once you install it you dont have to reinstall... never... It does not brake.

I have not tried to install "Hesperides" but I am confidentent that with some help from the forum will install correctly.
