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?

Hi
I would leave… :wink:

Your choice. I don’t think it matters.

One says leave, one says doesn’t matter. I guess I’ll go beck to the original.

Thanks!

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

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!
