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 a SAN (dual E5-2637s, 128GB of DDR3, 128TB usable RAIDz2 disks, 10g nic, 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] lists.purdue.edu. Do not send a ticket to RCAC - the mirror is maintained by a student group, not RCAC themselves, and issues will take longer to get solved.
If you'd like to reach out outside of e-mail, please contact us on #plug-mirror on irc.libera.chat.
