problems with ftp.us.debian.org mirror
I'm not sure that debian-devel is the right list for this, but I didn't hear
back from email@example.com.
For the last two weeks or so, I have been having problems with the
ftp.us.debian.org mirrors. It often takes me two or three tries to get the
current packages file using dselect udpate. Then, I often need to try two
or three times to actually download the updated .debs.
Investigating futher, I see
$ dig +short ftp.us.debian.org
$ dig +short -x 18.104.22.168
$ dig +short -x 22.214.171.124
$ dig +short -x 126.96.36.199
$ dig +short -x 188.8.131.52
$ dig +short -x 184.108.40.206
And, looking at the modified date for
each of these servers, I see
220.127.116.11 11/26/2004 08:05 pm
18.104.22.168 11/25/2004 08:08 pm
22.214.171.124 11/26/2004 08:05 pm
126.96.36.199 11/18/2004 08:04 pm
188.8.131.52 11/25/2004 08:08 pm
So, it seems that the progeny mirror is 8 days behind, and the kernel.org
and msu.edu mirrors are 1 day behind.
