Subject Re: Use of mirrors@apache.org...
Date Fri, 17 Dec 2004 19:38:50 GMT
I've just changed the instructions on this page:
to suggest the usage of our Jira issue tracker for new-mirror 
submissions.  I'm not a huge fan of Jira, but it seems to be the best 
that we have at the moment.

That should lighten the load on mirrors@apache.org and allow this list 
to be used for announcements and discussion that is of broad interest to 
all apache mirror maintainers.

So if you have an outstanding new-mirror submission that hasn't yet been 
addressed, please follow the instructions on that page.  Also, changes 
to existing mirrors, or problems in our mirror infrastructure can be 
submitted in the same way.  You can always follow-up on this list if you 
don't get any action.
