Dear Archlinux repository maintainers,

I'm a maintainer of the GARR Mirror system.
I'm contacting you because we are planning a new layout to improve performance and availability of our mirror system.

The new url for the Archlinux repo is, please update all lists, the old name will be working as legacy system.
If any other names are required please inform us.

The new system will provide only HTTP access and, only if required, HTTPS.
We are planning to provide a pool of reverse proxy, behind round-robin DNS, with IPv4 and IPv6.

Afterwards, we would like to use pull-rsync method to keep the mirror in sync.
If official documentation is available, I would kindly ask you to send me a link.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Best regards,
Paolo Velati
