The previous round of making things beater went well.

Just circling around back to this, since I didn't get any response from
some of the mirror admins about it.

I was just reading through the Chimaera release notes -


And I spotted this -

"All the mirrors contain the full Devuan package repository (all the
Devuan releases and all the suites). They are synced every 30 minutes
from the main Devuan package repository (pkgmaster.devuan.org) and are
continuously checked for sanity, integrity, and consistency. The
package repository network is accessed through a DNS Round-Robin."

So we advertise in the release notes that DNS Round-Robin package mirrors
update every 30 minutes, yet you don't all do that. Some are updated 1,
2, or 3 hours.

Can we fix that please?

If you are not updating every 30 minutes, tell me your actual update
frequency, so I can properly configure my tests. The reason why you
don't might be useful to tell me to.

Thanks everyone.
