Subject Re: Apache Mirrors
Date Sun, 24 Aug 2003 12:35:52 GMT
i've moved a few products over to the mirrors in jakartaland. for products 
which are part of a mirror top level project (eg. xml.apache.org), i think 
things are much easier that is suggested in the links below. it means 
setting up the common directory layout (maybe it'd be easier for someone 
to do this at one sitting for all xml sub-projects), setting up a code 
signing key, downloading and signing the releases to be mirrored then 
uploading into the new directory structure.

i think that infrastructure would prefer just the most recent releases 
moved to the mirrors with everything else moving (eventually) to archives 
but it might be best to check with them to confirm that this is right.

i've been putting together a simple check list page to help people in 
jakartaland make the move so maybe i'll post an url here when it's done.
