Not a direct answer to your question, but I’ve just read in the news that there’s a massive wave of DDoS attacks going on against western targets, and that so far, they don’t know where it’s coming from yet.

Disclaimer: I have not read the full article, and it seems to pertain to Europe only now, but it does say that the attack has been going on for weeks now, and that it also included attacks against ─ among other countries ─ India. So it’s possible that the data center where the Australian mirror is hosted would be one of the targets as well. :man_shrugging:

All mirrors are voluntary and Manjaro has nothing to with the day-to-day operation of any mirror.

If there is problems with a mirror in your area - you should contact the mirror provider.

Or provide a mirror

They may be voluntary and Manjaro may have nothing to do with the day-to-day but they absolutely should be aware when one of their mirrors has been decommissioned.

I agree

I partially agree…
i think the mirror maintenaner should contact manjaro to inform them they are stopping their service… Maybe they did it i don’t know…
That now it’s clear they stopped it… It’s clear that manjaro should remove them from the list.
