Academic Computer Club (ACC), Umeå University, Sweden hereby announces 
the intent to provide a mirror of Parabola GNU/Linux-libre. 
ftp.acc.umu.se has 20 Gbit dedicated connectivity to SUNET, and enjoys 
excellent peering towards Europe and US via NORDUnet.

Despite the name, the cluster is heavily optimized for http/https and 
also provides rsync service.

We are syncing hourly from rsync://repo.parabola.nu:875/repos/ in 
accordance with the instructions on 

* Mirror name


* Mirror organization

Academic Computer Club, Umeå University

* Mirror location

Umeå, Sweden

* Mirror speed

20 Gbps

* Mirror administrator (email)

ftp-adm at acc.umu.se

* Mirror access URLs

http http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/parabola.nu/

https https://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/parabola.nu/

rsync rsync://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/parabola.nu/

*NOTE* that the cluster is highly optimized for http/https, so despite 
the name we prefer to not publish clickable FTP links. Those who 
really needs to use FTP can usually figure it out from the site name!

*NOTE2* that the cluster uses redirects to offload requests for large
files to dedicated large-file offload targets. Mechanisms that check
mirror status must not treat this as an error.

On behalf of the ftp.acc.umu.se admins,

  Niklas Edmundsson, Admin @ {acc,hpc2n}.umu.se      |     nikke at acc.umu.se
