Debian's machines and net access
As many of you have noted, access to va.debian.org leaves a little
to be desired (intentional understatement). Having only set it up
as www.debian.org about a month ago I'd like to see it moved to
another machine with a better connection.
Instead of rushing into moving it like last time (out of one frying
pan and into another), it would be a good idea to first decide
what Debian needs and then work towards that goal.
As a starting point:
- www.debian.org needs 300M of disk space and good connectivity.
Except for the access problem, there have been fewer headaches
since this came under our control.
- primary mirror machine. All other mirrors would be from here.
Needs 4+GB of disk space and good connectivity. Could be the
same as www.debian.org if the connection is good enough
- master. Needs low latency, gobs of disk space and decent
connectivity. It is well served where it is now.
- development machine(s). Machines of each architecture that can
be used for doing development work.
- mail list server. Don't really know much about these.
- lots of mirrors. We're doing quite well here.
- anything else?
Machines we currently have:
Is there a way we can better use what we have?
If not, what other resources should we be looking for?
Plan for the future. Live in the present. But remember the past.
