openSUSE Mirrorlist Improved

December 16th, 2008 by

Peter Pöml has created a dynamic list of our mirrors with accurate information about which repositories they mirror.  You can reach the link via the openSUSE wiki.  The data in the mirror list is used by our download redirector download.opensuse.org to point users automatically to mirrors close to them.

Btw. if anybody else wants to mirror openSUSE, please read these Instructions about it.  We love to increase our mirror infrastructure and there are some regions that could use additional mirrors.  Even if you only mirror parts of the openSUSE tree, you’re welcome!

Thanks a lot to all the mirror admins that mirror openSUSE – and to Peter for his continous improvements to the infrastructure!

    How it is that ftp://ftp.rediris.es/pub/mirror/opensuse/ is mirroring a lot (everything?) but is not listed? RedIRIS is important (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RedIRIS), so I expect them to be doing a good work.
    The only listed spanish mirror is http://suse.bifi.unizar.es/opensuse/.

      RedDwarf, what can we do, when the mirror is not available for some time? It went offline yesterday. Our monitoring noticed that and disabled it in the database. Thus, we didn’t send users there.

      We reenable it once it is available again. During that time, it is not listed of course. The mirror lists are updated every 30 minutes, so they automatically pick up changes.

      It is very good that you report this (I think you did so also by mail, which even better!), because in this case I could reenable them already. If you check again, you should see them on the list.
