The generation of apt repositories at gwdg.de is going to stop

April 3rd, 2009 by

I was just notified by the ftp admin of gwdg.de (Eberhard), the long time reliable mirror of openSUSE, that he is going to stop the cronjobs at ftp4 which generate the /pub/linux/suse/apt/ contents at ftp4.gwdg.de, and shortly there after the rsync runs which sync it to ftp3 and ftp5 will be disabled.

I would like to thank Eberhard for the reliable service and all the hard work that was performed to generate the apt repositories during all those years!

    People still use apt? The one that had solver problems, which smart ought to fix? And the two which have been obsoleted by zypper through its much faster and precise solver? Yuck. They are probably the ones that still muck around with ifconfig instead of iproute. Hey, I did not like zypper at first too, but at least I did something about it, and now (1.0.5) it’s all good.
