Hi all,

I set up read-only access via rsync to the package master server which
so far only holds the isos and the irc logs (but soon, hopefully some
packages too). You can reach it at


It would be nice to drop me a short note if you plan to set up a mirror,
so I can add it to the mirror list - or you just open a pull request on

Two other thoughts regarding mirrors:
1. Maybe (at some point) it's worth to automate the addition and
deletion of mirrors. I'm not sure how far archweb does this
automatically, but my first attempt to get it running was not really
successful - maybe someone else want's to try it?
2. Personally, I like the approach of archlinuxarm with localized
mirrors: de.mirror.archlinuxarm.org, de2.mirror.archlinuxarm.org,
fr.archlinuxarm.org, ...
Maybe we should do it in a similar way?
