A big thanks to the team member who repaired this on their weekend.
And a big thanks for providing the resources to keep this mirror going.

are not seeing it operating correctly. Make sure any fault reporting goes
We do monitor the mirrors, but generally consider official fault resolution
on the solution to be business hours only.
We welcome other parties setting up alternative
mirrors. We have had many
discussions in the past with other companies and individuals about this
very question but as yet no-one else has been willing to allocate resources
to this not for profit service. We can provide a free access port if that
helps with getting the alternative mirror up and running.
As much as we have enjoyed supporting you guys as the
sole NZ mirror
provider over the last 15 years or so, we are happy to support alternative
mirrors to provide redundancy to the community.
We can provide further stats around traffic levels
later this week if that’s

then you have to be using their official multi
scripts. They weren't the easiest things in the world to get going,
but that was back when the world was flat, they may actually have docs
They do still want mirrors using the multi-stage pull. It's fairly well
documented now, I don't think we should have too much trouble :)
I had a quick chat with one of the Fastly folks in the #debian-mirrors
IRC this evening. He pointed out that http://deb.debian.org/
Fastly CDN version of the repository.
We discovered that the NZ routing for it is not currently very
sensible, but I've got some debug data to send them to get that
fixed. That's another option for folks having trouble while Citylink
sorts the official mirror.
