New Build-Server and Mirrors

Since the passing of our friend and sponsor Axel Beu we have been trying to secure the two servers (build server and web server)he had been sponsoring for us for the past years. He also held the domain siduction.org. Taking over those items is not easy and might fail for the servers.

Sponsorship

So we have been trying to find new sponsorship for at least the build server, which would be ~ 600 USD or more p.a. Today we succeeded in getting sponsorship for a machine that will do the job. Here are the specs of the server that will be sponsored by IP Projects, your competent hosting provider:

  • Intel Core i7-3930
  • 64 GB DDR3 1333
  • 4x 2 TB HDD
  • Adaptec 6405E

Build Server

We will build packages and images on that machine. Also, Debian’s KDE PIM packages have been built on there for the past years because they lacked a capable server to do that. We also keep a mirror of Sid there to be able to conveniently build stuff without wasting too much traffic. Also, our Continuous Integration (CI) based on Jenkins lives there.

Domain and expected Downtime

The transfer of the domain is even more important than that of the servers and equally hard if not harder to do. We might need to temporarily use a subdomain when we move the stuff from the old to a new web server, before we can secure the actual domain. So, don’t panic if you witness that, it will still be us and the old domain will return. There will also be some downtime for the web server, when we move stuff over to a new machine. We will inform you about that before it happens, and we will try to keep it as short as possible.

New Mirrors

We could also secure a bunch of new mirrors across the planet. Here is a list of all our mirrors as of today. They will be listed on the mirror section of the forum after we update the forum software and move the content over in the next few weeks, but they can be used as of today.

Besides rearranging our infrastructure we are also working on a new release, that hopefully will be released before Debian releases Debian 11 »Bullseye«. Until then, please stay tuned and siductive.
