In the past few months, there have been a number of things going on. I want to share those with the readers:
- New Document: http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors-rsync.xml The tools-portage team has made app-portage/mirrorselect use this document to help users select rsync mirrors in a similar fashion as distfile mirrors. Additionally, I have a bug open to include this page in docs and/or the homepage.
- [http://mirrorstats.gentoo.org] – tracks community distfile mirrors for freshness. This page has been around before, but now it supports rsync and IPv6 as well.
- http://mirrorstats.gentoo.org/rsync – tracks community gentoo-portage mirrors for freshness. This page is brand new. There was an old implementation but it wasn’t kept up to date as we added new mirrors.
- New mirror-admin team member, Mark (Halcy0n).
Coming up next: Better IPv6 support, including new rotations for IPv6 only and mixed rotations.
