I just disabled cvsupd on ftp-master. I don't think anyone was using it
anymore, but I thought I should mention it anyway. RIP. This change does
mean that we should get a bit more power out of the current server as we
don't have to build the cvsup file "database" anymore.
I'm currently also working on setting up our new ftp-master server which
has been sitting for way too long. The new server should have significantly
better performance than current ftp-master.
I hope to switch it over in the next two week but I don't know for sure
yet. If I do manage to get it done it will mean some downtime for
ftp-master while I do the final sync etc.
If anyone have specific requests of when I should not do this, please let
me know. When I will pull the trigger I will send a mail but there will
likely not be a lot of advance warning... unfortunately my/our time is
rather limited so I have to do stuff when I can see a window of free time.

Hello, great news, thank you very much ;o)
Please, which disk capacity is planned on the new server?
And is it right, that current ftp-master has 2 TB, but it
is still used under 1 TB because of unknown capacity on mirrors?
