Imagine my surprise when the nightly rsync of Gentoo distfiles with ibibilo 
resulted in my distfile repository getting totally deleted.  After a few 
emails wit the admins at ibibilo I finally got the answer that I was looking 
for... the truth...

>> Jerry, >> >> We are no longer rsyncing the distfiles due to space constraints on our >> distributions volume. Gentoo's own instructions for setting up a mirror >> recommend excluding the distfiles directory: >> >> http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/rsync.xml >> >> If you need these files, you could try the other mirrors listed on this >> page: >> >> http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors2.xml >> >> Best, >> >> Matt >>
I promptly emailed back an offer of two new 1,000 gig drives if they would put the gentoo distfiles back up and... no answer.... Guess they really don't care. -- ***************************************************************************** From the desk of: Jerome D.
