If Dotdeb is useful for you and if you want to mirror it, just add a cron job to periodically fetch the packages :
rsync -a --delete rsync.dotdeb.org::packages/ /your/local/path/
Then, if you wish your mirror to appear on the mirrors list, send me its full URL.
Note 1 : mirroring once a day should be enough. More frequent updates could lead to a ban without any warning.
Note 2 : Using anything else than Rsync (Wget, HTTrack…) could lead to a ban without any warning.

Been trying to email you but all emails sent to your php.net address are not going through and bouncing back. Please email me a address that does not do this. Thanks.
how many traffic is normal for a dotdeb mirror?
At this time, it needs between 100 and 150 GB per month.
Thx for the fast answer,
and how many disk_space for all packages?
about 500MB of free disk space are needed.
Please ensure your mirror is NOT in a already-listed country, before submiting your request.
Germany is already listed 😉
Thx for your great service anyways!

rsync has been stuck and failing all day on IPv6
i’ve manually forced rsync to use IPv4 for now but thought better to make you aware
Same thing here
@Anthony Somerset & @Scott : can you confirm it’s working now? (cause : unapplied ipv6-related sysctl variables)
Yup all is good now
I’ve just set up a mirror in US Sanjose for those who have poor connection to the official US mirror. Suppose to update every 5 days.
1G port, 2T bandwidth per month
It’s not a poor connection… it’s a throttled connection so that many connections can be made and not sucking up bandwidth for just a few. And no one else has said anything about the connection until now.
I’m not complaining about it, but providing an alternative source for those who need it. Sorry if I made you confusing.
I’ve just set up a mirror in US Los Angeles. Update every day.

I’m mirror dotdeb in Switzerland: http://dotdeb.kilrathy.net
