Hello, some of you already noticed, a few days ago the directory dists/sarge was deleted from the Debian mirrors. This was intentional, as the sarge release had is end-of-life some time ago and is now moved to archive.debian.org. You won't see a big drop in the space usage, as we are not deleting all files belonging to sarge at once. That way we want to keep the maximum number of files to delete during one mirror sync run low enough to not trigger usual limits. (For example the Debian internal mirrors stop deleting files if more than 40.000 files would disappear). For that reason the whole deletion of sarge will take a few more days. If you mirror archive.debian.org you want to make sure that your rsync call *does* include the -H parameter, to make sure you correctly mirror hardlinks. You will save about 30GB of space with that. Please also note that the archive.debian.org layout changed, as we no longer archive main debian releases, but additionally put other archives that are *very* close there. (Basically archives that run on .debian.org infrastructure or are expected to be there *soon*). -- bye, Joerg <towo> "Das Internet, jetzt auf 47 DVDs - oder auf 2 CDs in der jugenfreien Fassung"?
