Purdue Linux Users Group mirror
The Purdue Linux Users Group mirror mirrors several projects and copies of popular freely available software.
We support HTTP, HTTPS*, FTP, and RSYNC on both IPv4 and IPv6.
All content is pulled from upstream servers via rsync at a rate of four times daily (with the exception of a few image collections which are not available over rsync, which are pulled once weekly).
If you wish to mirror large quantities of content from us, please do it via rsync - not HTTP or FTP.
The mirror is hosted on an Isilon box (dual Xeon L5410s, 28GB ram, 111TB disk [71TB usable], 10G network, running Debian) generously donated by Purdue's research computing group.
If you have issues or wish to request new content to be mirrored, please contact plug-mirror [at] listsdotpurduedotedu.
We are currently an official mirror for:
- Linux Mint
Currently, the following people are mirror maintainers for the PLUG mirror:
- Jacob Slater
- Patrick Finnegan
*We only support TLS1.2 and TLS1.3 with relatively modern (at the time of writing, 20191009) cipher suites.
A note on privacy/logging:
- We keep IP-specific logs for one week (to allow for mitigations of abuse).
- We keep anonymous usage statistics using telegraf/prometheus.
- We have not been asked by any law enforcement body/government agency to turn over logs, perform wiretaps, or to otherwise spy on individual users.
- We have not been subjected to mandatory key "escrow" of any sort, nor will we willingly do so.
- We are a US-based organization and are subject to US law and laws of the state of Indiana.
- Apart from mitigating abuse and as legally required, all do not track requests will be/are honored.
- Access to logs is only available to trusted mirror maintainers. A complete list of maintainers may be found above. We prohibit utilization of logs for purposes outside of those outlined above.
