ftp-master moved to newraff
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
ftp-master has moved to newraff.
Sorry for the lack of notice. Although migrating ftp-master to a more
powerful and better connected machine was always a long term plan, it
recently became much more immediately necessary.
Hopefully people won't really notice the difference. The UploadQueue
on auric will continue to work for a month or so, at least, but please
use role names for machines (i.e. 'ftp-master') rather than their
Please report any problems to email@example.com as
[So far, only the ftp-master service has moved. The buildd side of
things will move over the next couple of days.]
Tomorrow I'll unrestrict auric. With regards to newraff, I plan to
leave that restricted for now. I was serious about setting up a
mirror and have been working on it (you can see an out-of-date copy on
merkel). And once that's in place, we can perhaps have a more
meaningful discussion about the merits of restriction.
newraff is, like spohr, a HP DL380 [Dual P4 2.8Ghz HT Xeon, 6Gb RAM,
6x147GB RAID 5 SCSI]. Many thanks to HP for donating it and Above.Net
for hosting it.
Also many thanks to both Visi.net and Sun Microsystems for hosting
and donating auric respectively.
