Dear Archlinux PowerPC users,

we just recently moved to another data center but since the old machine 
was still available, we kept on running ftp.archlinuxppc.org on there 
while ftp2.archlinuxppc.org was at the new location.

Now that we've experienced checksum errors in the pkg.db & severe 
package reoccurring corruptions we shut down the machine completely. It 
will stay offline as we decided to get yet another blade at our new data 
center for redundancy of the archive.

ftp.archlinuxppc.org has been updated to point at the new FTP service 
already and thus should either not be reachable or the correct server. 
In the best case you don't have to change your setup the slightest, if 
you provider's DNS caches, make sure to use ftp2.archlinuxppc.org.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience and hope we didn't cause too much 

Your PPC Team
