How to mirror ascii?

I need to have a local copy of all packages that comprise ascii. What's the most efficient way (for the mirror server) to do so?
I only need packages for amd64 archictecture.

Should I just use lftp or rsync?

I am new to Devuan (and have not really done much with debian previously). I say this so you have an idea of who you're dealing with. But not new to linux.

Re: How to mirror ascii?

Seems that I will need to mirror debian and then use amprolla to get an ascii mirror.  Is there a plan by anyone anywhere to do a mirror like this?

Maybe `debmirror` is the right tool for that packages job?

#!/bin/sh
sudo -u ruth debmirror \
        -a amd64 \
        -d ascii \
        -s main -s contrib -s non-free \
        --nosource \
        --method http -h auto.mirror.devuan.org -r merged \
        --progress --no-check-gpg \
        /wrk/mirrors/devuan

I was not patient enough to test it more than a few minutes.
"ruth" is my account for administrative work not needing "root" privileges because "ruth" sounds like "root" in german... ;-)

I don't know about a secret ascii images/installers download location.
A simple mirror for jessie's files could look like...

#!/bin/sh
##
## stdout is tty?
##
if [ -t 1 ]
then TTYOPTS=PSv
else TTYOPTS=
fi
##
## ...aaaand action!!!
##
sudo -u ruth rsync --delete -raX${TTYOPTS} files.devuan.org::devuan/. /wrk/mirrors/files.devuan.org/.

That looks interesting and I also don't see ascii dirs/files anywhere so not sure where they are either.

Re: How to mirror ascii?

From that it looks like rsync will not work. I tried amprolla and it just gets 404s.

I'll keep chipping away at it and eventually figure it out.

When?
Directly after starting or after running some time?
Here (currently on Debian/Jessie) it is slowly doing it's task but I never had the patience to test it more than half an hour or so and sure that is far away from completing...

Currently I have no Devuan system with enough free harddisk space to test it there...

There's a linefeed missing between `non-free` and `MD5Sum:` and the field `Codename:` probably should be `ascii-backports` (same for `ascii-proposed-updates` and `ascii-updates`).

Apart from these showstoppers for mirroring `ascii-backports`, `ascii-proposed-updates` and `ascii-updates` the remaining results look ok so far:

Currently I have no ASCII/arm64⁽¹⁾ system, so I cannot test installing from this mirror.

(1): Last weekend I reinstalled all my Devuan-PIs with Jessie because...
...eeeehhh... ***cough³*** <whisper> ASCII </whisper>

Edit@20170726-1042-UTC: Bonus question.

What's the difference between `auto.mirror.devuan.org` and `packages.devuan.org`?

Edit@20170726-1054-UTC: Jessie has the same `Codename:` problems.

E.g.: .../jessie-proposed-updates/Release

Re: How to mirror ascii?

well i was tired now i can confirm its not just me only!

auto mirror its a main  entry to proxy' the packages for users in a automatic way.. umm maybe amprola must be the reason ?

Re: How to mirror ascii?

Since the devs don't have time to babysit this forum, I took the initiative to ask for you.  Here's the answer:

<golinux> You might want to have a quick look at this: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=3675#p3675
<Centurion_Dan> we don't provide rsync access to the packages at this stage.

You might want to read more about amprolla.  It's just a search away if you would care to try:

Someday I will come up with an answer to that and it will be with a noteworthy interest rate!
:-P

The "Codename:" problem still is unanswered.
Trying to debmirror a dist with wrong codename results in mirroring the dist matching that codename...
That can't be correct!

Have you filed a bug report?  Or tried to contact a dev on #devuan or #devuan-dev?  It is unlikely anyone who could fix this would see it here.

Re: How to mirror ascii?

From what I can tell the entire project pivots on amprolla3. So mirroring and apt-file and probably lots of other stuff depends on amprolla3. And also inrfastructure setup/config.

In summary: infrastructure followed by amprolla3.

Yeah saw it in the backlog and just now connected it to you.  wink   I can't remember if it was actually solved. (Too much to remember . . .)  A bug report is a more permanent way of recording it.  irc logs quickly fade into oblivion.

If you don't know the answer by now, you're not paying attention so I'm not going to repeat myself.

if documentation were put in right place . . .

This fragment is somewhat intelligible.  Documentation is important.  We all know that.  It also needs to be written.  It doesn't write itself.  As to where is the right place?  Well, that depends . . .

"babysit"'s dont ask so many to the "dev"'s ok, more respect to the users AGAIN!

I have no idea what you're trying to say here but I do know that you end by again wrongly judging and and insulting those of us working so hard on a project that you bitch about in nearly every post.  Some gratitude for the tremendous effort it's taken to get this far would be appropriate.  But then finding anything positive or remotely helpful in one of your posts is the last thing I'd ever expect.  If you don't like it here and have such a low estimation of our efforts, please move on elsewhere . . .

well i can made, but where? spell check can made by others.. and dont said "hard to track your write", documentation its missing and are need!

does users can go here and ask for problems? and then when ask call babyes and other .. so then i still waithing for all the reported bugs, i have problems to track repositories (well at least that was rsync lack of)

i noted that Devuan said in the main page that its a dristribution not copy of debian, but i also read in some where here and in git.debuan that 90% are DIRECTLY copy of debian...

in that case why not copy the debian documentation in a system wiki and then users can made changes over the copy.. if devuan its just a copy without the sytemd, only we must change the systemd related and done!

its a obvious choice and the more inteligent way! please! event pretent to do something that have many lacks
