Adding a new mirror

This text should outline the procedure for adding a new mirror for Arch packages

For the Mirror Administrator

Please open a bug ticket with a request to become an authorized mirror.

Please provide the following:

  • Mirror domain name
  • Geographical Location of the mirror
  • Supported access methods (http, ftp, rsync, ...)
  • URLs for the above access methods
  • The IP from which the server will be rsyncing (this may or may not be the same as the ip of the domain)
  • An administrative contact email

rsync access

After this is complete, you will have access to sync from rsync.archlinux.org

Please ensure the following, to keep our load low:

  • Do not rsync more rapidly than every hour.
  • rsync on a random minute so it is more likely the requests will be spaced out with other mirrors

The Arch Linux side

  • Add the IP to the the rsync whitelist on gerolde\
  • Add the mirror info to the Django admin site
  • Add the mirror to pacman's mirror list
