Is it due to bandwidth constraints for the build machines? Or is it a matter of just querying more mirror server admins and asking if they will host? Other constraints? See below.
I don’t know much about how mirroring actually works.
Here are my guesses:
- when a build completes the new packages are uploaded to master mirror
- from the master mirror other mirrors then pull any new packages
(probably using rsync but maybe just curl/wget/etc)
- when a build completes the new packages are uploaded to all mirrors
one after the other until all mirrors get updated
- none of the above
- mirrors pull from the build machines using rsync (or curl/wget)
