Subject: [gentoo-announce] New rsync mirrors
Date: Thu, 02 May 2002 21:52:59
1 Hi All,
3 The vast numbers of new Gentoo Linux users have started to overwhelm our
4 main rsync server -- earlier today we had 59 syncs running
5 simultaneously! To help alleviate this problem, we've set up a DNS
6 round-robin system so that rsync load is distributed over our
7 much-appreciated rsync mirrors. To take advantage of our rsync mirrors,
8 add the following line to your /etc/make.conf:
10 SYNC="rsync://"
12 If you would like to host an rsync mirror on a server with a decent
13 amount of bandwidth, please email me (drobbins@g.o) and I'll show
14 you how. The more, the merrier.
16 Best Regards,
