Mirrors in China

KLA Y
Hi, everyone


    I am really sorry to trouble you again at the first. But I have to send
this email to you.

    I am a student  who from HuBei University Of Education and  is a master
of the Baidu FreeBSD Paste Bar. I have emailed you to tell you that
FreeBSD haven't official mirrors in the Chinese mainland. For example, if I
want to install "nano", I have to waiting it for 1 hour.

     As we all know, due to this reason, there are fewer people know what
is the FreeBSD, and fewer people to use it.

    We want to mirror FreeBSD that including pkg,
posts, freebsd-update and freebsd portsnap mirrors. But FreeBSD project
seems that doesn't support we to mirror that. We don't know how to make it.
And I call Linux User Association which belongs to the University of
Science and Technology of China. They would like to mirror it, and
mirrors pkg and ports successful by the special way.

‌    Here is their website:

http://mirrors.ustc.edu.cn


   github:

https://github.com/ustclug/mirrorrequest/issues/172

    And if you want to help us, you can send an email to

[hidden email]

   Thanks a lot.

yours,
ykla

Hi,

First of all, thanks for offering to help.  Currently the
.cn.FreeBSD.org mirror is mostly dead and we do need help.

Please see my response inline.

Sorry to hear that.  pkg is using geodns, so it's important to let
clusteradm@ know if it is giving you the optimal results.  To check it, run:

dig _http._tcp.pkg.freebsd.org srv

And:

dig pkgmir.geo.freebsd.org

(You can override the mirror by making changes to /etc/pkg/pkg.conf and
replace pkg.FreeBSD.org with e.g. pkg0.twn.freebsd.org or
pkg0.kwc.freebsd.org).

The mirror documentation is at
https://wiki.freebsd.org/Teams/clusteradm/tiny-mirror and
https://wiki.freebsd.org/Teams/clusteradm/generic-mirror-layout .

freebsd-update and portsnap mirrors are managed differently, and you can
contact Colin Percival (cperciva@) for that.  Alternatively, if your
mirror have low latency to an existing mirror, it's also possible to
simply reverse-proxy to an existing mirror and cache the data locally.
For relatively low usage portsnap mirror, this would result in much less
data transfers ("normal" portsnap mirror would transport much more data
than a proxy).

The scripts for mirroring portsnap is available from svn at
base/user/cperciva/portsnap-mirror/ .

Hope this helps (I'll be AFK from Friday for ~10 days but will try to
respond emails).

Re: Mirrors in China

KLA Y
Linux User Group, University of Science and Technology of China would like
to mirror FreeBSD.

Here:

https://github.com/ustclug/mirrorrequest/issues/172


https://github.com/ustclug/mirrorrequest/issues/171

But do Linux User Group, University of Science and Technology of China
mirrors FreeBSD ? And what should LUG do for it ?

thanks.
