    Default Packman question

    I also got caught up in the packman problem. As suggested, I changed the repository to a mirror. My question is: After the original packman repository is back up and running, should I change my repository back, or leave it set to the mirror?

    Your choice. I don't think it matters.

    I have two packman repos in my list, with one of them disabled:

    Code:
    erlangen:~ # zypper lr -u Packman packman 
    Alias          : Packman 
    Name           : Packman 
    URI            : http://ftp.fau.de/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ 
    Enabled        : Yes 
    GPG Check      : (r ) Yes

    Autorefresh    : On 
    Keep Packages  : Off 
    Type           : rpm-md 
    GPG Key URI    :

    When ftp.fau.de choked in June 2020 I switched to packman.inode.at. Now I switched back to ftp.fau.de. It will stay that way until ftp.fau.de experiences again some issues.

    What about using mirror brain with packman too? It works great for opensuse!
