Re: deb.debian.org vs security.debian.org

* [Thu, Aug 19, 2021 at 01:25:00AM -0500] Daniel Lewart:
Is there a preferred sources.list URI for the Debian security
repository between:
 * http://deb.debian.org/debian-security
 * http://security.debian.org/debian-security

I asked in debian-devel and received two replies:
 * https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2021/08/msg00166.html
 * https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2021/08/msg00167.html
 * https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2021/08/msg00172.html
but no consensus.

AFAIK, what Peter said ("the security updates repository is intentionally not supposed to be mirrored") was true for a long time, but isn't since a while. I guess the bandwidth requirements became too onerous. As pabs said, currently "both of these URLs point at the Fastly CDN, so they are equivalent". Just pick one.
