Subject Re: [mirror-lums] OpenOffice.org to Apache OpenOffice mirror system migration
Date Sat, 24 Mar 2012 07:18:37 GMT
Hello,

We at the Cybernet-LUMS mirror (mirror-cybernet.lums.edu.pk) have been
mirroring both the projects (Apache and OpenOffice.org) for about 2
years now. Considering this, this transition should not have any
substantial changes in bandwidth/storage usage etc. on our side. But
we have two questions:

1) Will the openoffice.org download servers completely shutdown (and
as result do we have "remove" openoffice.org as a separate project)?
2) What will be the fate of versions that were released before the migration?
