The FreeBSD Mirrors Spring cleanup


What is it?

This years Spring Clean will be about the mirrors of the FreeBSD project. Over the years a huge amount of mirrors have been gathered, and most of are pretty good. Unfortunately, one or two are broken, not up-to-date, out-of-service, have disappeared or can't be found. Without statistics you don't know anything, so I made a tool which checks for... * The availability and age of the file TIMESTAMP in the FTP mirrors. This file is updated once per hour on the FTP master site. * The availability of the ISO images on the FTP mirrors. These files are only created at release time, but at least it shows where you can find your ISO images!

Current status

It's in the early phase
