[fixed] Spline Repo down for hardware maintenance
« on: 2015/02/01, 12:25:36 »
For now, the Spline repository is down. I am trying to talk to someone in their IRC, but no response so far. Depending on what broke, this might take minutes, hours or a day or two. If you are in a hurry, you might want to switch servers.

edit: they need to physically get to the server. This will not happen before tomorrow.

I hate the Verification.

Hello T-ampfer,

I just did an update, no errors from spline.de today for me.  It must be fixed now.

Hello siducers,

after some hardware issue was fixed the spline mirror is up and running again.

Thanks for your feedback and patience.

greetings

Is gatech repo updated as fast as spline and uni-stuttgart? I changed to uni-stuttgart for this downtime but think gatech may be a bit faster from Australia.
Wish there was an Aussie siduction repo!

Talk to the providers down under, like universities, providers that support free software. We can then set it up with them, you would be our liaison.

I'm just a poor pensioner, but I'll try to contact Monash Uni who run a Debian repo.

@sunrat  Try to see if the University has a Linux User's Group.  They usually maintain the mirror.  When I sent out emails a couple of years ago to some Australian Universities, I got no response at all.  Maybe an Aussie will have better luck.

Hard to find a direct contact with the local uni server admins.
I just posted this to Linux Users of Victoria, we'll see what happens.

Hi. I live in Melbourne and have been a long time user of siduction distro. I regularly post on their forums, and during a recent chat with one of the developers he suggested it would be great to have an Australian repository as currently the closest are in USA and Germany. I know there are some other other Australian users and more are expected as it is a great way to use Debian sid. I am an advocate.
As siduction mainly uses Debian unstable repo, the traffic would be fairly low as it is just a few extra custom packages and isos.
Do you administer local Linux repos, or do you know who I can contact to propose this?
cheers
Roger

Hi sunrat

Here you will find a list of Debian sponsors worldwide, 16 of which are australian. There is also one in NZ. Maybe there you may find someone willing to support hosting siduction?

An other starting point could be LUG-austalia: http://linux.org.au/foss_in_australia

Good luck

Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

No love from LUV yet. It's actually not high priority as I never had any problem with German or US mirrors (except for occasionally as in this thread topic) and use an AU Debian mirror for all non siduction specific packages. I'll keep it in mind though.
I've only heard from one other Aussie siduction user but there must be more.
