I'm finding trying to get Friday's snapshot of Fedora 9 to be
sub-optimal... 62 hours estimated to go after already timing out once.
I've got two peers and one seed :( I'll probably get it by time the
next snapshot is ready :)
Is this happening to others?
Not happening here, I'm adding another seed to the swarm - I see it's
already uploading more then it's downloading, while it is still downloading.
Is this really a viable way to put out *weekly* snapshots?
Is hosting jigdo templates a possibility? In my situation it would
well because I mirror the rawhide trees locally--yes I realize this begs
the question of why I need the snapshot if I already mirror rawhide, but
I'm curious if it fails to install for me just as rawhide has for the
past three days.
The snapshots (torrent ISO images) should have an updates.img which
should make them installable.
Jigdo is a possibility in distributing the snapshots, but the downside
is that at least one party, and preferably more then one, will need to
keep hosting the slices; while on day 0 all slices are (or should be) in
rawhide, on day 1 some packages might have been updated again and are
thus not available anymore -unless some party keeps hosting the entire
tree such as Fedora Unity does with their Re-Spins; 4 mirrors keep
hosting all slices that come from the updates/ repository for as long as
the Re-Spin is offered for downloading.
