http://mirror.0x.sg/

This forum is a little dead, but I thought I’d like to share my mirror service, which I set up a few years ago (to no fanfare) because I was sick and tired of getting connection resets from the NUS mirror, and could not find any well-maintained mirrors in Singapore.

All distro mirrors are updated 4x daily (6-hourly) with distro-recommended scripts and/or rsync settings, with the exception of Arch Linux ARM, which is push-mirrored from the Arch Linux ARM team.

Please let me know if you have any requests. I am intending to mirror Linux Mint and FreeBSD pkges too, in the near future.

You are most welcome to rsync off my mirror, if your company wishes to keep an on-network mirror.

I'd like to warn that my Ubuntu archive is still at initial sync. But everything else is good and up-to-date.

And yes. The NUS mirror is terrible. Apt get operations randomly fail with connection reset.

Very nice! This ain't a dedicated mirror, right? As in the server's being used for other stuff? (or else that would you mean that you're paying for it).

I can’t find any info on where I can rsync this from. If you have that info, I’ll be happy to mirror it.

Come to think about it, there is no need to as Lubuntu basically uses the same source as Ubuntu. Amended my sources.list file to point to your mirror source and it work great. Thanks buddy.

Iíve trimmed the Debian mirror architectures to reduce disk usage and consequently ZFS fragmentation on my mirror.

If you have specific requests to mirror architectures, Iíll be happy to include them again.

Mirrored architectures:
amd64
i386
armel
powerpc
armhf
mipsel
mips
source

I have also removed SPARC architecture from my Ubuntu archive/ports/cdimage mirror.

Anyway, once my SI 10G is installed, it will be one of the few 10G dual stack mirrors in APAC.
