The Debian project maintains a dedicated backup server that contains copies of most project resources excluding the buildd systems. This system is in use since July 2005. The backup of a resource is more than just a copy of the current state. It consists of 10 to 100 versions, representing several past days. Each day a new copy is created on the backup system. Copies older than the configured number of copies get purged. Currently all backup use 365GB of disk space. The services in the backup are: admin.debian.org buildd.debian.org cvs.debian.org db.debian.org ddtp.debian.org ftp.debian.org keyring.debian.org lintian.debian.org lists.debian.org nm.debian.org planet.debian.org popcon.debian.org qa.debian.org raff.debian.org release.debian.org security.debian.org teams.debian.org vote.debian.org wanna-build.debian.org wiki.debian.org women.debian.org Additionally the /etc directory of several important hosts are part of the backup. The list of files/directories that are sent to the backup server are configured in /etc/da-backup on the hosts running the service. Since a history of changes is maintained on the backup machine Debian administration can roll back a resource to an older version and also extract differences in past versions on demand. If you want/need more or other data from .debian.org hosts to be part of the backup, please contact email@example.com.
