I'm doing a bit of a review on some of the sites we're mirroring on
ftp.clear.net.nz, in an attempt to keep the disk utilisation a little
more under control.
We're currently pulling down a bunch of things; the main disk-consumers
ftp.freebsd.org:/pub/FreeBSD (4M without packages or 2.x)
ftp.openbsd.org:/pub/OpenBSD (1M, 2.5 only)
ftp.kernel.org:/pub/linux (5M without "software" tree)
ftp.redhat.com:/pub/redhat (5M without srpms, 5.2 + 6.0 only)
ftp.debian.org:/debian (6M without potato)
Now, it seems to me that there's little point in mirroring content if
there are other people in NZ already doing it -- for example, if there
was a good debian mirror somewhere else, I'd be happy to replace the
CLEAR Net debian mirror with a text file which says "see ftp.xxxx.yy.nz
for this mirror" if it meant I could pull something else down that
wasn't already in the country (like NetBSD, which was there but which
I removed to make space for everything else).
So, here's the question: does anybody know of other locations in NZ
where the archives above are already mirrored?
