Subject Question...
Date Wed, 30 Dec 1998 13:49:40 GMT
Hello there...

We applied for mirror site status starting on October 23rd, 1997 at
which point we were informed that sometimes it takes up to a month for
the listing to be updated.  With perfect understanding and patience we
waited a couple of months at which point we sent another email and got
no response.  A week later we sent an email which got a response stating
it takes up to a month again.. fine..

To make a VERY long story short we've emailed every 45-50 days since and
got the same response.... TO THIS DAY, we are still not listed as a
mirror site.  It's pretty embarassing as we were the absolute FIRST
mirror site in Canada many ions ago.... but in late 96 we had to drop
the mirror status due to bandwidth problems.

We also have a very large clientele which uses Apache and comes to us
for their downloads.  In our information sent to our customers we've
always instructed them to go to http://www.apache.org and select our
mirror site.  Pretty embrarrassing again when we put out a memo saying
it's only temporary that our site in unavailable and a year and a half
later almost it's still not resolved.

Our mirror site is still updated daily at http://apache.kawartha.com

Since we started having problems with the mirror site at kawartha.com
we've setup 6 other mirror sites in different regions and they've been
added to the mirror list within 14 days... WHY?

Thank you for your time,
