Devuan Package Mirrors

Subject: [DNG] Devuan Package Mirrors
Dear D1rs,

it's a pleasure to announce that we are finally ready to setup new
Devuan package mirrors, i.e., mirrors who will be able to serve the
whole Devuan package repository.

If you are willing to host a Devuan package mirror, please read first
through the "Devuan Package Mirror Setup Walkthrough": … hrough.txt

The walkthrough assumes that you know how to use rsync and how to
setup a webserver with a few rewrite rules.

The new package mirrors will be using the repositories merged by
amprolla3 at We ask that package mirrors have a
valid (static) IP, and that they accept their mirror to be listed
in the Devuan website.

Devuan's goal is to setup a global CDN of package mirrors in the next
few months, and this preliminary phase will inform about the best
strategies to achieve that goal. The setup of a proper mirror network
is part of a medium-term plan (and investment) that has already
started and will consolidate and develop several aspects of the
current Devuan's infrastructure, improving its availability,
robustness, and fault-tolerance.

We would like to thank all Devuan users, contributors, donors,
developers, maintainers, and enthusiasts for their continued support.


KatolaZ, on behalf of The Dev1Devs
