I'm an admin of TUNA mirror site. We've set up a fedora mirror and it
has been serving for years. We'd like to be listed in the official
public mirror list. Here are some basic info of our site:
Name: TUNA mirror site
Sponsor: Tsinghua University
Location: Beijing, China
The Fedora mirror on distro.ibiblio.org is disabled since December 2015
as the rsync configuration is not totally working/correct.
The crawler which checks if your Fedora mirror is up to date prefers
rsync to crawl as it is much more efficient. The rsync URL specified in
MirrorManager for distro.ibiblio.org is: rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora/linux
This does not work as the RSYNC module does not exist. Looking at fixing
the URL I found the RSYNC module fedora-enchilada but that works only
50% of the time:
$ rsync rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora-enchilada/
drwxr-xr-x 4,096 2016/09/01 22:28:59 .
-rw-r--r-- 151,776,595 2016/09/01 22:28:58 fullfilelist
-rw-r--r-- 180,294,333 2016/09/01 22:28:58 fullfiletimelist-fedora
drwxr-xr-x 4,096 2016/05/17 00:56:09 linux
$ rsync --no-motd rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora-enchilada/
@ERROR: Unknown module 'fedora-enchilada'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1648) [Receiver=3.1.2]
So one of the systems behind distro.ibiblio.org seems to have a
different rsync configuration. It would be great if this could be fixed.
The specified HTTP URL is also wrong: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora/linux
But I can fix that myself.
Thanks for supporting Fedora.
It would be really nice if you could add IPv6 support to dl.fedoraproject.org.

I was looking at mirrors with problems in Fedora's mirror database and
saw that your mirror was unfortunately auto-disabled. Auto-disabled
happens if the crawler, which scans your mirror, is not able to crawl
your mirror within the time limit of 3 hours.
It would help us a lot if you could provide rsync access for our
crawler. Our crawler checks the content of your mirror and using rsync
requires only one network connection in contrast to crawling via HTTP
which can take up one connection per directory/file on your mirror.
Another question. We are currently looking for mirrors that also provide
HTTPS URLs. Any chance you could add a HTTPS URL to your mirror.
