Any volunteers for ROSA mirroring?

Сообщение ДроноваЮ » 23 июл 2013, 18:39

Hello ROSA users,
As some of you probably remember, we never said we would need no help :) So, here is our Mirroring Policy, in case somebody noticed our mirror issues these days and is willing to help :beer:

How to become an official mirror of ROSA Distribution
If you want to become an official ROSA Distribution mirror, have a server with enough free space and a wide internet channel, please, read the following guide to become one.
Please note that, in order to be an official mirror, you must maintain your mirror in a moderate health, so that its uptime and bandwidth should not be a problem for people who use it.

Minimal upload speed
Minimal upload speed required to become an official mirror is 20 MBit/s.
Space Needed
At least 60 Gb.
Rsync and cron command
We recommend to use rsync + cron to ensure that your mirror is updated regularly. In order to have a synced ROSA you must be able to setup a regularly running rsync script on your server. We propose to use a following command:

Код: Выделить всё

rsync -avH --partial --delete-after --delay-updates --exclude '.*' <rsync mirror url> /path/to/the/repo/
How to submit a mirror request
When your mirror is running and set up, you should contact ROSA via official bugzilla mirror request
Open a bug with the "Becoming an official mirror" title.
This bug will be private and visible only to ROSA employees; no information you enter will be shared.
Bug text must consist of:
  • location of the mirror (city and country)
  • mirror contact/admin (name, email address - only one)
  • available bandwidth
  • which primary mirror you are using
  • list of your URLs, including protocol used among http / ftp (anonymous) / rsync
  • your geographic coordinates (optionally, to speed up the process of adding your mirror into the mirrorlist )

Welcome to Official ROSA Mirrors! The nearby users will use your mirror to receive updates.
