Please update mirrors.lst and mirrors.tcz
« on: May 18, 2011, 02:18:27 AM »
Please update mirrors.lst and mirrors.tcz

In mirrors.lst there are 6 active links.

In mirrors.tcz there are 9 active links.

In http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:mirrors there are 17 active links.

The wiki page also includes the location of each mirror.

I would like to see the locations included in mirrors.lst and mirrors.tcz.

It will still work the same when a user selects a url.


Having a mirrors list in the wiki enables users to keep it updated. The team then only needs to copy it after it is updated.

If anyone knows of another mirror, let us know, or update the wiki page.
Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.

Done.
Not sure why we would need mirrors.lst, as its use has been supplanted by mirrors.tcz
Old data processing axiom, if data is duplicated in more than one place then surely it will get out of sync. Seems the wiki should be sufficient if one does not know the location of their local domains.

Is mirrors.lst used by people using old versions of Tiny Core (before mirrors.tcz was introduced)?

Not by anything programatic. It was something, at the time could be viewed, and then manually edited into the mirror file located in /opt. Since ibiblio changed to lighttpd viewing such is no more.
Now since the wiki has this information those who happen to be using legacy versions actually have easier access via the Wiki to view mirrors.

If it is not used, mirrors.lst can be removed.

Please keep it, it's been very useful to me. It's much easier to parse quickly than mirrors.tcz, easy to set up the mirror in a MC VM etc.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

+1
I hope it is not too cumbersome to keep the file and the extension somewhat in sync with the wiki-page. In the past there was not much attention given to it, but OTOH this should not require some daily activity (more like once every few weeks or month).
