FAQ
All,

CentOS-5.1 is released to the public mirrors (msync and mysnc-dvd).

We currently have the top directory (5.1) set to 700 permissions. This
should allow you to download as your "rsync" user now, but it will
probably not be browseable on your web/ftp server.

We will change the permissions to 775 on the 5.1 directory as we get
more than 50% of the external mirrors with the 5.1 tree completed.

We are doing it this way on purpose to allow the syncs to finish BEFORE
people start hitting the public mirrors for yum updates.

Also note that we are syncing out with 15 total mirrors, BUT there are
more than 300 mirrors that sync from these ... so it might be slow going
for the first couple days.

Also, if any of you can spare EXTRA bandwidth on top of your public
mirrors, you could take a copy of the .torrent files from the 5.1/isos/
directories and seed the ISOs for bittorrent as well.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes

    How do you know when you've reached 50% if those sites have perms set to 700?
    Or what is the definition of 'external mirrors' here? Or maybe the assumption
    is that CentOS mirrors who have already synced set the permissions to 775, and
    temporarily disable syncing of 5.1?

    Well .. we have this page:


    http://mirror-status.centos.org/

    What will happen is that mirrors will move to the right on the top graph
    as they start syncing ... until they get finished ... then they will
    move back to the left. (This is based on a TIME file that is one of the
    last to sync).

    So we should see a shift to the right, then back to the left, of all the
    mirrors that are actively syncing.

    Once we see that, probably in 24-48 hours, and once our outbound
    bandwidth starts going down on our msync / msync-dvd mirrors, we will
    change the permissions .. and then you guys will pick it up on your next
    rsync.

    The definition of "External Public Mirrors" are the ones listed in our
    database that are NOT .centos.org machines ... currently all those on
    the above status page. We also have 15 servers that are "Internal"
    CentOS Mirrors that we use to sync to the External Public Mirrors.

    Also, the reason we want to wait until we get 50% of the mirrors (at a
    minumum) before we change permissions to 755 is so that we get several
    mirrors with a complete filesets, because we have a roundrobin script
    that sets our ISOLISTS and MIRRORLISTS for 5.1 ... and once we change
    permissions, our script will pick up the machines, and start directing
    new yum updates to do the 5.1 update set. We would like there to be
    enough mirrors on line with 5.1 so that we can handle the load for all
    the users who will be upgrading.

    Thanks,
    Johnny Hughes
