Online Mirrorlist

It is possible to create a mirrorlist online?

Re: Online Mirrorlist

Hi, did you check out https://archlinux32.org/download/ ? On the bottom is a list of all available mirrors (not
completly up to date though).

Did I understand your question correctly? :-)

Re: Online Mirrorlist

We don't have mirror statistics up (yet) as upstream has, but if the link andreas_bauman gave is too outdated for you, you may check the mirrorlist on github

Re: Online Mirrorlist

yes, this is what I meant by "mirror statistics" - this is on the (yet unwritten) todo list, but it's certainly low priority right now.
Feel free to have a look into that if you(r brain) got some spare cycles. smile

Re: Online Mirrorlist

there is now https://packages.archlinux32.org/mirrors/ and https://packages.archlinux32.org/mirror … s.php?json - though there are still some features missing (e.g. links, different formats) smile

Re: Online Mirrorlist

What's the simplest way to use that to eliminate mirrors which are out of date?  I see the score in the JSON which seems to be higher for repos with fewer packages or an invalid last-sync date, so I guess that's a negative correlation with the goodness of each repo.

Re: Online Mirrorlist

The values are calculated similarly to as https://www.archlinux.org/mirrors/status/ does. You may also be interested in the "delay" value.

Re: Online Mirrorlist

There is now also a column last_active which yields true only when the mirror was active and checked within the last hour.

Re: Online Mirrorlist

I guess this column has been renamed recently_active.

It's good to see that repos are now a lot more complete than they were when I first looked at updating my mirrorlist.  Only a problem with rankmirrors slowed me down in updating (hint: pass it '-r core' and it'll work again, despite the if statement on line 79 of the rankmirrors script seeming to do exactly that by default)

Re: Online Mirrorlist

FWIW, I am trying to document that rankmirrors gotcha as a bug, and have managed to activate and log in to the bug tracker, but I don't seem to even have permissions to make a comment anywhere when I look at my profile, and certainly am not able to raise a bug.

Edit: Fwiw, my login name there is the same as here.
