All repo users,

    I am pleased to announce that we now have enabled public read-only
rsync access to the unofficial hardware and software repositories.

    $ rsync rsync://linux.dell.com/repo
    drwxrwsr-x        4096 2007/06/29 11:21:22 .
    drwxrwsr-x        4096 2007/06/27 22:02:45 hardware
    drwxrwsr-x        4096 2007/06/16 01:53:34 scripts
    drwxrwsr-x        4096 2007/06/27 22:03:08 software
    drwxrwsr-x        4096 2007/06/15 18:03:25 testing

    Anybody who wishes to mirror our content may now do so via rsync.
Updates to the wiki pages to follow...


    Note: for your own safety as well as ours, always use the "-H"
option to rsync to enable hardlinks. Otherwise the data size blows up by
about 20x.

    Note: as everybody knows, I am pushing to make these official. One
of the tools I use to push it is the web stats. Although I really want
people to be able to efficiently mirror my content, I hope that, until
it becomes official, nobody does, as that decreases my web stats. :)
