ftp.tw.debian.org DNS record?


After examining the abnormal number of rsync connections, we noticed that the DNS record of ftp.tw.debian.org is pointing to our mirror site (debian.nctu.edu.tw).

$ dig @ ftp.tw.debian.org

; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> @ ftp.tw.debian.org
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd

ftp.tw.debian.org.      7       IN      CNAME   debian.nctu.edu.tw.

However, services on debian.linux.org.tw are normal, so it's not a case of server failure (or there isn't a failure) on ftp.tw.debian.org (debian.linux.org.tw).

We believe there is a mistake.

If ftp.tw.debian.org is going to do a DNS load-balancing, then we are interested in becoming a primary mirror site.

If that is not the case, then please point the DNS record of ftp.tw.debian.org back to debian.linux.org.tw (because we are not a primary mirror site).
