ibiblio.org mirroring broken

A few days ago, someone contacted me. He wanted to mirror Puppy Linux off ibiblio.org, but their rsync server seems not to be working. I asked him to contact ibiblio.org.

Just now I have looked at nluug.nl, and see that they have not updated since June 8:
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/quirky/
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/

Ditto here:
ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/sunsite.unc.edu/distributions/quirky/

However, these guys still have working mirroring:
http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/quirky/

Hmmm. I have sent an email to nluug.nl.

mirrors again
Seems fixed now. Just checked nluug and aarnet.
Be aware that UOC must monitor changes on ibiblio more closely, either with a keen eye or a smart script. When the mirror issues occurred earlier this year UOC was the only one to keep up. They use wget when rsync fails AFAIK.

Puppy Download Page
Puppy Download Page

The first download link for ibiblio on the Puppy Linux repository and Quirky (and Wary) repository do not work. Get a web page error when clicked on.
The Alternative HTTP URL does work.
