Well, it is now February already. I will go through the backlog of mirror requests and start adding new mirrors again. It is only myself in this effort so please be patient :) Some outstanding issues remain: - New deployment of has been delayed. I will send out an announcement here and on when we get that deployed fully. - "Missing timestamp.chk" issue which was reported on this mailing list. I will try to track that down soon. We have already looked at it and the issue is non-obvious. Time to dig deeper. - IPv6 rotations. Expect more communication soon regarding how to better serve you and our end users. On the positive note, I did get a new gentoo-portage rsync mirrors listing available online at: - It has all the mirrors listed, but there is still some formatting changes I want to make. Eventually, we will put this link on the main website too. Thanks again for all of your hardware & bandwidth donations! -Jeremy
