Subject: [gentoo-dev] Proposal for adding berlios to thirdpartymirrors.
Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2006 22:06:49
Message-Id: 45870F6A.2000809@gentoo.org
Excerpt from the official site:
"BerliOS Developer is a free service to Open Source developers offering
easy access to the best in CVS/SVN, mailing lists, bug tracking, message
boards/forums, task management, site hosting, permanent file archival,
full backups, and total web-based administration."

To summarise the above sentence, it is a service similar to SourceForge.
Although BerliOS currently has only three mirrors, this would most
probably change as the number of projects hosted by BerliOS increases.

As of writing this email, BerliOS is hosting 4842 projects. There are
206(?) files being fetched from BerliOS by ebuilds in the tree. This was
counted per ebuild, not per package.

The proposed mirror name is 'berlios' and the three mirrors are:
- http://download.berlios.de
- http://download2.berlios.de
- ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub
Something along the lines of mirror://berlios/${PN}/${P}.tar.bz2 can be
used in SRC_URI.

I'm sure all of you understand that not much work would be necessary for
the the transition as it can occur over time, for example when package
maintainers modify an ebuild. So, what do you folks think?
