Hi all -
Mirror providers ahoy! After a long hiatus (during which Dennis'
network has carried 95% of the load), we've sorted out the mechanisms
necessary for more folks to help out with the RubyForge bandwidth load.
The new setup (*) is in place and ready to go. Here's the current list:
rubyforge.rubyuser.de: gems, files
rubyforge.vm.bytemark.co.uk: gems, files
To host a file mirror requires about 3.5 GB of disk space and you'll
need about 400 MB to host a gem mirror. I'm not exactly sure about
bandwidth usage, although I suspect it's about 400 GB per month if
you're hosting both a gem and a file mirror.
So, who wants to sign up first? :-)
