Bug Description

It'd be nice if you guys had a mirror infrastructure setup, such that folks can rsync a copy of all your packages and either function as a public mirror (preferred) or an internal-only mirror. :-)

There's a strong chance we'd be interested in mirroring your MySQL builds in London.


Give me a shout when things get a bit further along, it looks interesting.

I got asked to document "direct download" counting (for statistics) by Arjen. Essentially you'd want a bouncer like http://wiki.osuosl.org/display/Bouncer ...... am not sure how you'd get decent tracking of folks who mirror you (repositories) since I'm not 100% sure that apt-get supports redirects. Will investigate.

If it does then you need something like:

    deb http://mirror.ourdelta.org/debian

Then you could basically use Apache 301/302 redirects to say files for Debian Etch / Debian Lenny have temporarily/permanently moved to, perhaps, http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/ourdelta-mysql/debian?

If you want to base off Enterprise source (also discussed with Arjen) then Proven Scaling have an excellent mirror hiding over in the following corner of the Internet --


Good luck, and may the force be with you ;)
