Information for prospective mirrors

To be listed on this page we require mirrors to be fast, up to date, capable, and well-connected to networks in the region in which they serve.

Mirrors must carry the following:

OS and packages for all architectures supported by SecBSD.

As of Jun 2021, the minimum space required is approximately 150GB.

However, to reduce problems for users when snapshot packages are updated, it is strongly recommended to use the rsync options --delete-delay --delay-updates which requires additional space during updates. --fuzzy may also be helpful to reduce the amount of data transferred when updating snapshot packages. Depending on the disk space available, mirrors may provide more contents, such as older releases, current source tree, etc.

Operators of mirrors who are interested in having their site added to the list on this page should contact Purple Rain with further details about their site, including network connectivity, geographic location, and general information.
