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)

The ArchLinux side

  • Add the IP to the the rsync whitelist on gerolde\
