Subject FYI [Fwd: First pass at mirrors document]
Date Tue, 26 Nov 2002 07:30:48 GMT

Since you have been talking about where to put distros, this is FYI 
about a discussion taking place at infrastructure@apache.org that will 
have impact on the topic.

Just FYI.

Okay, I took the results of prior discussions on infrastructure@ and
attempted to jot down what the perceived consensus was.  You can view
the page at:


If you see any disrepancies or mistakes, lemme know or just edit the
document yourself.  (site/xdocs/dev/mirrors.xml)

The target audience of this document is the remaining projects that
do not allow their software to be mirrored.  The fact is that most
mirrors only mirror apache-dist - so I think we have to work within
that constraint.  The rsync script that Pier has posted before is a
bit overboard - we should only have *one* rsync module for our
mirrors to retrieve.  (We do *not* want them to mirror the web pages!)

The ideal should be that all releases must be accessible only from

(Note that we have hacks in place so this sort of works, but that's
achieved by Alias and redirections - the files *really* have to live
in /www/www.apache.org/dist/* for the mirrors to pick them up.)

Outstanding issues:

1) xml.apache.org needs to store releases in


rather than


2) jakarta.apache.org needs to store releases in


rather than


3) Delete all nightly builds directories (most are empty now)

4) Implement a similar page to the HTTP Server download page for all
projects.  See:


(httpd-site/xdocs/download.xml contains our source.  The rest of it
is just some minor tweaking to the site/docs/dyn/mirrors/mirrors.cgi
to recognize the locations of each template file.)

5) For those that haven't seen it (thanks to Stefano for showing me
this link!):


We should strive to eliminate as much of the jakarta and XML
downloads from daedalus as possible - we need to use the mirrors for
these downloads.

Thoughts?  -- justin
