I'm waiting to get the 30secondrule.com domain moved to a new server, so
I don't have the URL ready.
What is the preferred format for the URL? Just something that ends in
'/gems/'? SUuh as:
What happens if a user goes to install a gem, gets a redirection to a
mirror, and the mirror is down?
What should my cron task look like to fetch the gems and index? (I
think I can find this info by digging through past E-mail, but I sort of
hoping we can start assembling a FAQ on this, so having all this info in
one response in the archives might be a start on that. Make it easier
for others to start mirroring)
Do people/companies offering up mirrors get some public acknowledgment
on the rubyforge.org home page( e.g. 'Gem hosting mirrors provided by ...')?
Anything else a mirror site needs to know or do?
