I'm getting the following:

Started update at Tue Jun 15 10:00:01 UTC 2010
@ERROR: access denied to gentoo-portage from (2a00:ed0:1::873)
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1506) [Receiver=3.0.7]
End: Tue Jun 15 10:00:04 UTC 2010

So I'm guessing we need to be added to the ACL too?

*** If you manage a Gentoo Portage mirror, please change the config to 
sync from "" instead of You can use 
the A or AAAA record at your discretion. ***

As you know, up to now, we've asked new Gentoo Portage mirrors to sync 
from This was mainly for historical reasons. 
However, we would like to use as a community mirror entry 
someday and create similar DNS entries for distfiles and portage. 
(masterdistfiles & masterportage).

Thanks again for your continued support of Gentoo Linux,
