Alan Clegg has recently announced that the Linux archive at
banjo.concert.net will be withdrawn on August 14 because of lack
of filestore.  This has been one of the three 'primary' sites
for Linux files, as well as the official site for the releases
of GCC and for the linux-standards list.  It has also served as
a prime location for files from Linus himself, for X11, and for
such packages as the dos file system.

I'm sure we are all very grateful to Alan for providing this service,
and very sorry for its disappearance.

Is it possible for those of us who administer anonymous ftp sites
to discuss what can be done to provide replacements for the
facilities which will be disappearing from banjo?

I've sent mail to a few people who have been providing packages to
banjo.  For example, hlu now has an account on tsx-11, and will be
placing new GCC files in ~ftp/pub/linux/GCC directly.

If other people who are providing major packages would like FTP accounts
on tsx-11, that can be arraged, within reason.  If you are interested in
doing so, please send email to ftp-linux@tsx-11.mit.edu.

Note: tsx-11 is my personal workstation, and while I don't forsee it
going away anytime soon, this something that cannot be ruled out.  If
someone else in the U.S. is willing to volunteer the time, energy, disk
space, and network bandwidth to be a major FTP site, that would be a Good
Thing.  I am a bit nervous about people talking about TSX-11 as the only
Linux repository in the U.S.; that sort of responsibility can very
rapidly make this sort of job (which tends to be a thankless one that
people take for granted) a lot less fun.  :-)

P.S.  Yes, I will try to make the speed at which uploaded requests to
tsx-11 much faster than it has before.  But it is difficult when people
upload packages without telling me what they are, and why they're better
than an already existing package in the archive.  I would appreciate it
if you would keep that in mind the next time you read complaints about
how difficult it is to find stuff at an FTP site because everything is
disorganized and there multiple versions of a particular package.  I'll
do my best to try to reduce that, but all you people who upload things
to tsx-11 are going to have to help me out.

hi,
I've been talking to Alan, and I have agreed to take the task of replacing
banjo.  I am in the process of setting things up and transfering all
the linux tree, so there may well be a period (hopefully no more than
a week) between the demise of banjo and the presence of the linux stuff
at the ftp site sunsite.unc.edu.  I'll post an annoncement to the group
when things are going again.

if you have questions, you can respond to this address or to my
new one at jem@sunsite.unc.edu.

jem.

Ted is kind enough to make tsx-11 available to me. In the future, I will put
the official GCC stuffs on tsx-11 and fgb1.fgb.mw.tu-muenchen.de. As a matter
of fact, I have been putting testing GCC releases on tsx-11. As far as
testing stuffs go, we have some other sites.

Me too. Thanks a lot, Alan.

        ftp.uu.net mirrors tsx-11 in systems/unix/linux
                                 (archives/packages/linux)
        and probably some other symlinks as well.

perhaps people should use it as the primary source for linux in the
US.  It doesn't reduce the the responsibility, but atleast it will
save him some cycles, and is available 24 hours a day (also via
anon uucp).

I can't speak for ftp.uu.net, but uunet.uu.net, the UUCP site,
does not have everything that tsx-11 has.  The MCC-Interim and
X11 distributions are notably absent.
