ubuntu.mirror.ac.za

Asked by Donald on 2020-07-31

Greetings,

I tried posting this to mirrors@ubuntu, and also https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ that pointed me here.

I refer: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+mirror/ubuntu.mirror.ac.za-release.

1.) Andrew Alston is no longer with TENET, how can I go about updating
the owner information, as we do indeed have a Organization registered in launchpad (https://launchpad.net/~tenet), and would make sense to move it there.
2.) We are in the process of moving our mirrors to new hardware - the
Ubuntu Mirror has indeed already been moved, and the URL's have changed -
What we have done:

The Ubuntu mirror traditionally fell under ubuntu.mirror.ac.za, but we
have since split them up:
https://ubuntu-cloud.mirror.ac.za
https://ubuntu-release.mirror.ac.za
https://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za

all three support ftp and rsync:

ftp://ubuntu-cloud.mirror.ac.za
rsync://ubuntu-cloud.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-cloud

ftp://ubuntu-release.mirror.ac.za
rsync://ubuntu-release.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-release

ftp://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za
rsync://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu

3.) I was also not aware that our mirror was listed here - and am therefore unsure if the splitting of the mirror
into the 3 components is the most efficient(given what is currently listed) - Please can you then let me know of any processes that should be in place for running this mirror ?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Donald.
