Subject: [Gentoo-admin] rsync access to the cvs sources
Date: Sat, 24 Aug 2002 12:39:37
1 This is the log of my recent conversation with drobbins on IRC.
3 <nus> cvs [update aborted]: connect to
4 failed: Connection refused. Do you have any idea what' going on?
5 <kibosh> yes, we're no longer offering anoncvs
6 <kibosh> it was too much of a resource drain.
7 <nus> but gentoo-src is only 7MB, why?
8 <nus> so many people interested in the build system? :-/
9 <kibosh> cvs is a resource hog
10 <nus> any other means to get at the sources? is there an rsync server
11 with them?
12 <kibosh> we need to get them on sourceforge so it doesn't drain *our*
13 resources.
14 <kibosh> our single server just can't handle it.
15 <kibosh> and we have very limited bandwidth.
16 <nus> well, there seem to be some rsync servers across the world already
17 offering the distro, why not push sources through them?
18 <kibosh> could be do-able.
19 <kibosh> post your request to gentoo-admin@g.o
21 So, could that please be arranged?
