Hi all,

The Linux Kernel Archives Mirror System is getting pretty well populated with servers, but there are a couple of high-use countries which aren't covered.

If you are, or have contacts, in the following countries and would be willing to sponsor a mirror, it would be extremely appreciated (of course, *any* mirror sites would be extremely appreciated!)

See for the exact details of what we're asking for.

  • Japan
  • Australia (I received a registration for Australia, but the site wasn't set up properly; hopefully that can get fixed, but we could use two in Australia)
  • New Zealand
  • Germany (hopefully at least one is in process here)
  • South Africa
  • Israel
  • Finland (believe it or not...)

A great many thanks to all existing and future mirrors!
