Subject Mirror operator contact email ( was: Sourceforge and AOO 3.4 distribution)
Date Sat, 24 Mar 2012 06:53:56 GMT
Howdy,

NOTE - added infra ML on CC.

Alright, a copy of the draft mail message (see below) was sent to each
of the contact addresses for the 98 mirrors listed at
http://www.openoffice.org/distribution/mirrors/ 
with the subject line of:
'OpenOffice.org to Apache OpenOffice mirror system migration'

Of those 5 emails immediately bounce, 4 with 505 err and 1 with unk DNS
err.

There is another 8 or 9 entries on that page without an email contact
listing, perhaps contact information can be found over the weekend.

Just wanted to give the Infra team a heads up, I did not try to check
for which if any of these are already ASF mirrors, wouldn't be surprised
if there aren't a few...so who knows they just may contact the infa
folks direct..if so, now @you know why, now.

Hopefully this will lead to some added mirrors.

Best wishes,

//drew
