New mirror in Finland - needs testing

Hi everyone,

I am using Manjaro for quite a while and now it is time to contributing back.
I noticed that there are no mirrors in Finland, so I created one.

Details:
HTTP: http://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/
HTTPS: https://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/

Repos: Stable/Testing/Unstable, ARM Stable/Testing/Unstable

Reachable at IPv4 (IPv6 in progress)
Hosted by Hetzner, location: Helsinki.

Syncing: rsync://mirror.service.org/repo.manjaro.org/repos/
Sync freq: 2h

Feel free to test it and contact me here or via email (alex@kyberorg.io)

As @Fabby mentioned you can add by modifying /var/lib/pacman-mirrors/custom-mirrors.json:

[
    {
        "branches": [
            1,
            1,
            1
        ],
        "continent": "Europe",
        "country": "Finland",
        "last_sync": "00:00",
        "protocols": [
            "https",
            "http"
        ],
        "resp_time": 0,
        "url": "https://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/"
    }
]

Do you want your testers to only reside in :finland: or can they be from another country in :eu:

@Fabby any country worldwide.
I personally use it from Tallinn, :estonia: and it is extremely fast from here (1Gb updates within seconds).

@Yochanan both are supported. Personally I prefer HTTPS as well.

Changed my /var/lib/pacman-mirrors/custom-mirrors.json to contain:

[
    {
        "branches": [
            1,
            1,
            1
        ],
        "continent": "Europe",
        "country": "Finland",
        "last_sync": "00:00",
        "protocols": [
            "https",
            "http"
        ],
        "resp_time": 0,
        "url": "http://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/"
    }
]

and id a pacman -Suyy to rebuild.

I’ll DM you with my IP addresses so you can check on your end.
