Rsync support for Wine Download Server

Post by taoky »

Currently the FTP site (ftp://ftp.winehq.org/pub) of wine download server does not contain the "wine-builds" folder, and it is very difficult for downstream mirror sites to sync wine-builds from HTTP(S).

I heard that the wine-builds folder access from FTP is removed as many web crawlers crawling contents from that folder and eating much bandwidth. But for rsync protocol there wouldn't be so many crawlers as FTP do, and limitations can be set (max connections number, etc.) to constraint the load of rsync service. It would be very appreciated for Wine Download Server if there can be a rsync endpoint for downstream mirrors to sync from.

Thanks.

We prefer that nobody uses FTP site. It only comes from our primary server and is not mirrored on the CDN like the dl.winehq.org HTTPS version is.
