Hi Arch community

I'm Stephane de Labrusse a french linux user and I have some place for you on my server. I do not use really Archlinux but I have friends who use it and I like this community project.
As I'm already managing a SME Server repository (, I can share some of my bandwith and hard disk for your project. Let me know if my request need to be enhanced before to be accepted.

So I hope that I will be in the archlinux adventure.

Mirror domain name

Geographical location of the mirror


Supported access methods (http, ftp, rsync, ...)
http, rsync no ftp for the moment but let me know if you need it

URLs for the above access methods

The name of tier 1 mirror you are syncing from, which should be one of this: (Great Britain) - rsync://

An administrative contact email

Please join the arch-mirrors mailing list.

I will do it

Please ensure the following, to provide consistent mirroring and keep the upstream mirror's load low:

Sync all contents of the upstream mirror (i.e. do not sync only some repositories)

All folders are synced

Use the following rsync options: -rtlvH --delete-after --delay-updates --safe-links --max-delete=1000

I use these options

Do not rsync more rapidly than every hour

every hour I make a rsync by a cron entry
This task depends upon
