archive.debian.org rsync address change

On Thu 23 November 2023 with tags debian mirrors infrastructure technical
Written by Donald Norwood, Adam D. Barratt

The proposed and previously announced changes to the rsync service have become effective with the rsync://archive.debian.org address now being discontinued.

The worldwide Debian mirrors network has served archive.debian.org via both HTTP and rsync. As part of improving the reliability of the service for users, the Debian mirrors team is separating the access methods to different host names:

  • http://archive.debian.org/ will remain the entry point for HTTP clients such as APT

  • rsync://rsync.archive.debian.org/debian-archive/ is now available for those who wish to mirror all or parts of the archives.

rsync service on archive.debian.org has stopped, and we encourage anyone using the service to migrate to the new host name as soon as possible.

If you are currently using rsync to the debian-archive from a debian.org server that forms part of the archive.debian.org rotation, we also encourage Administrators to move to the new service name. This will allow us to better manage which back-end servers offer rsync service in future.

Note that due to its nature the content of archive.debian.org does not change frequently - generally there will be several months, possibly more than a year, between updates - so checking for updates more than once a day is unnecessary.

For additional information please reach out to the Debian Mirrors Team maillist.

Call for bids for DebConf24

On Tue 31 October 2023 with tags debconf debconf24 debian
Written by Debian DebConf Committe

Translations: fr pt-BR sv

Due to the current state of affairs in Israel, who were to host DebConf24, the DebConf committee has decided to renew calls for bids to host DebConf24 at another venue and location.

The DebConf committee would like to express our sincere appreciation for the DebConf Israeli team, and the work they've done over several years. However, given the uncertainty about the situation, we regret that it will most likely not be possible to hold DebConf in Israel.

As we ask for submissions for new host locations we ask that you please review and understand the details and requirements for a bid submission to host the Debian Developer Conference.

Please review the template for a DebConf bid for guidelines on how to sumbit a proper bid.

To submit a bid, please create the appropriate page(s) under DebConf Wiki Bids, and add it to the "Bids" section in the main DebConf 24 page.

There isn't very much time to make a decision. We need bids by the end of November in order to make a decision by the end of the year.

After your submission is completed please send us a notification at debconf-team@lists.debian.org to let us know that your bid submission is ready for review.

We also suggest hanging out in our IRC chat room #debconf-team.

Given this short deadline, we understand that bids won't be as complete as they would usually be. Do the best you can in the time available.

Bids will be evaluated according to The Priority List.

You can get in contact with the DebConf team by email to debconf-team@lists.debian.org, or via the #debconf-team IRC channel on OFTC or via our Matrix Channel.

Thank you,

The Debian Debconf Committee
