Please take a look at http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:NewMirrors for instructions about switching to the new mirroring scheme.
Does that mean I must now apply? as an official mirror to sync from a Tier-1 mirror? If so what is the procedure to apply as an official mirror to gain access to sync, but not have the mirror appear in any public mirrorlist, do I simply request it not be added?
Also, that wiki lacks info so barring the above option, does anyone know which Tier-2 syncs most often or how up-to-date they are(guaranteed by policy)? In my case I'm looking for a Tier-2 in the US that syncs at least once a day as the ibiblio mirror hasn't sync'ed in the last 2 days AFAICT.
More context: my mirror is the A.R.M arm.konnichi.com and it syncs once per day, no more, no less. I don't particularly care where I sync from, I just need it to be up-to-date every day. As I said, that wiki lacks info so if I'm missing something feel free to tell me to go RTMF providing you also point me to that manual(mailing list doesn't count). Thanks.
If I understood you correctly - you want to sync from some mirror, but not become an official mirror. There is no limitation for syncing from tier1 mirror, they are normal mirrors with access enabled for everyone.
In USA you can sync from tier1: rsync://rsync.gtlib.gatech.edu/archlinux/ rsync://mirror.rit.edu/archlinux/ or tier2: rsync://mirror.umoss.org/archlinux/ rsync://mirrors.cat.pdx.edu/archlinux/
Frequency of updates of any mirror can be seen at https://www.archlinux.de/?page=MirrorStatus
cool, thanks that's what I wanted to know, thanks.
