Hello mirror admins,
we have put a file called lastsync into our root dir to be able to check whether a mirror is up to date compared to our master server; even if its part of a mirror chain. Some mirrors have overwritten this file by their own. Therefore I ask you to check you script and if it creates such a file, either remove it or perpend a . which should not interfere with any of our files.
(Due to this the mirror status pages at https://www.archlinux.de/?page=MirrorStatus and https://www.archlinux.de/?page=MirrorProblems) might show wrong data. So, don't worry if it shows that your mirror hasn't synced for 40 years. (My script didn't expect anything else than a timestamp in that file)
If you have a lastsync file which does not contain a timestamp (error log at status page show something like "invalid lastsync time: 2010-08-04 05:22:08-04:00" but your script does not create such a file you most likely inherited this from your upstream mirror.
Greetings and thanks for mirroring us,
