    Default download.opensuse.org problems

    Just saw this announcement on the project mailing list:

    --- snip ---

    Hi,

    We face at the moment a rather critical problem - in
    download.opensuse.org's RAID 2 discs died at the same time,
    which means we can't restore the filesystem at all.

    Most stuff is copied somewhere else, but restoring it from
    scratch can take easily a day - we're talking about several TB.

    For now I redirect download.o.o to widehat.opensuse.org, which
    won't be able to hold the load for long - but it's better than
    spitting errors.

    Greetings, Stephan

    --- snip ---

    Wanted to pass this information along to our forum users so they were
    aware of this issue. As Stephan noted, they're working on recovery right
    now, but it's going to take some time.

    Trying to Add Community Repositories thru Yast pops a warning box that no repository list is found.
    Is this also related to the disk failures (openSUSE 11.4 & 12.1)?

    Very likely, as the list of mirrors is pulled from that server. Though
    the server's request have been redirected to another server, the people
    working on the problem said that that other server would likely become
    overwhelmed in short order.

    Thanks, Carlos, for posting Coolo's update from the ML - it sounds like
    the milestone 4 release is going to be dropped (nobody seems to have any
    objections to it, and I think the move makes sense as well under the
    circumstances).

    To me, it would make more sense to delay.

    Maybe you should explain that on the ML, then.

    No, they know what I think and I know what they think. We agree to disagree :-)

    OK, but as you know, posting about project issues here isn't likely to
    change anything either.

    I do not intend to change it, I'm simply saying what I think :-)

    And I do not want to waste their time or mine arguing about that. They have
    more important things to do. My feeling is minoritary.
