Re: [E-devel] cvs, servers and stuff.

As I wrote Raster (I wanted to write to this list but my mail client and
I mixed things up), I think the ultimate way of addressing the server
load would be BitTorrent as it is in principal a mirroring system and it
is easy to track the stats (someone  mentioned this is not so easy with
cvs mirrors).

BUT this makes only sense if you don't push a new .torrent out every 12
hours ;)

My proposal would be:

1. a .torrent every month or week when the code is in a good shape (this
can save the server from the /. crowd ;) )
2. tarballs every day or a daily div of the tarball from which the
.torrent was build (keep them till the next .torrent is out and then
keep the sources tarball of all the .torrents)
3. I like the idea of the tarball divs (but is it needed to do this
every 2 hours?)
4. keep anoncvs

How much of the load comes from the gentoo users like me?


5. make 2 ebuilds for the gentoo users one that uses the  tarball from
which the .torrent was build and one that uses the bleedingedge with the
divs (the new 9999 ebuild)
