Awesome, I've sent dylan a email :)
@selea You da real MVP sir !
Thanks :) I am just doing my part with what I can. I wish I could do some code thou
Yes! That would be cool!
I am unable to see if it support rsync thou, that is the preferred method to sync the repos.
Would it be possible to enable rsync for it?
meanwhile, I'll join the matrix room :)
@selea nope. Curiosity: any reason Gentoo isn’t mirrored?
I have not thought about it, I will check that out and see if it is needed
@selea Gentoo is, in theory, my favorite distribution. I don’t use though xD
@selea just saw in their telegram channel that you already added them 👏👏👏👏
It is only .iso's at the moment, but packages will be avaliable soon too :)
They dont have that many mirrors at the moment, looks like a nice project to help out!
I remember that I asked them in a mailing list last year, but I did not get an answer. :)
@selea I don't remember exactly when but they had some problems with a maintainer who left and took all the keys. Maybe you messaged them in the middle of the aftermath?
problably :) I'll ask them again :
I don’t use any of these, but:
NixOS - has a really cool update model
Lunar Linux - Source-based distro; not sure if it’s still active
Puppy Linux - small, pre-built images
I have asked Puppy Linux in the past, but there was no interest from their side unfortunately
Already do :) and it is an official Mirror too
@selea Just mirrror them all. There must be 2000 linux distros by now. :)
@selea Gentoo? I was also about to start mirroring Calculate Linux (binary-based Gentoo) but I haven't gotten started yet.
I think that Gentoos mirror is quite big? I wonder if I have room for it :P
oh! I really like the fact that Calculate Linux have their own Mastodon, Peertube and Pixelfed instance!
@selea The source mirror requires 550 GiB but the rsync mirror only requires about 2 GiB (as of 2016, so probably double that lol). I'm definitely going to check out Calculate's other accounts though, didn't realize they had those!
@selea Fedora and/or openSUSE!
@selea yeah, the best mirror has like an average 6
Yeah I used crunchbang back on my EEEpc too :D
Sadly, Bunsenlabs seems to have died - no updates for a while :(
@selea hehe awesome. Yeah it seems they didn't do any updates in a while. Too bad.
But regolith-linux sure does look nice!!
@selea Yeah it does! haven't tried it yet, I have to admit. But I'm not really an i3 user atm anyway. It's on the list for a rainy day haha.
