    debian.org.ua: universal Ukrainian Debian mirror

    15th July 2008

    http://debian.org.ua/ and ftp://debian.org.ua/

    What is on offer (mirrors):

    • backports.org
    • cygwin
    • deb.opera.com
    • debian – stable, testing, sid
    • debian-archive (starting from 1.1!)
    • debian-multimedia
    • installation media (CDs/DVDs)
    • debian-security
    • even debian-volatile is here!

    All this goodness is only 3 hops away from my DSL modem…. (ISP UkrTelecom)

    Gone editing /etc/apt/sources.list :)

    P.S. For non-ukrainian IPs, access might be slow/bandwidth-limited; for Ukrainian IPs, speed might be up to 100MBit/sec.

    Update: some time after publishing this post, debian.org.ua was down for some reason. When it was up, it was serving me packages with a mere 3 kb/sec :( . I found that ftp2.debian.org.ua mirror is faster at the moment.
