Debian Mirrors Redirector
« on: 2015/05/10, 22:20:50 »
I learned something new today.  There never seems to be a time when you can know everything about Linux.  Anyway, http://http.debian.net is a mirrors redirector.  What does this mean?  Glad you asked; from the horse's mouth:


The service [mirrors redirector] allows many of the nearly 400 Debian mirrors to be made available via a single address, adapting to your network location, IP family connectivity, and service availability.


Today, I received an email from Debian stating that the mirrors redirector is now hosted on debian.org infrastructure under the name httpredir.debian.org.


Following are samples of my updated sources.list under CrunchBang 11:


##DEBIAN
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
##DEBIAN BACKPORTS
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian wheezy-backports main contrib non-free
