Hardware problem: rsync.opensuse.org down
The server running rsync.opensuse.org is down since 2016-01-10. We will need quite some time to fix this and apologize for the caused inconveniences.
What a start in the new year: the server running rsync.opensuse.org died with two broken hard disks at 2016-01-10.
As the hardware is located in the data center of our sponsor IP Exchange, we apologize for the delay it will take to fix the problem: we need not only the correct replacement hard drives, but also a field worker at the location who has the appropriate permissions and skills.
During the downtime (and maybe also a good tip afterward), please check on http://mirrors.opensuse.org/ for the closest mirror nearby your location that also offers rsync for you.
