hostingxtreme repository mirror to go down

Post by gapan » 11. Feb 2017, 10:39

I was informed that mirroring services for our repository at hostingxtreme will be discontinued. Please make sure you run reposetup/gtkreposetup and choose another mirror if you are currently using it. I have already removed it from the list of available mirrors. The mirror will go down in about 2 months from today.

Hello gapan,

switched some time ago, they became quite inconsistent as of late (since new years perhaps) with frequent downtime.

Hi, gapan,

Thank you for the heads-up about the hostingxtreme mirror. I'm sorry to hear that, as it had been performing reliably for me up until recently. As ChuangTzu noted, I've have some issues also, but I assumed it was our connection's fault rather than hostingxtreme's.

I just switched over to the xmission mirror (they're based in Salt Lake City, UT) and will give them a try. It looks like you've already updated the Salix mirrors Status page ( http://salixos.org/mirmon.html ) -- you're fast! :)
