Hi Kevin,

linux.anu.edu.au is also mirror.linux.org.au, the Linux Australia

So, the https cert would really need to be for mirror.linux.org.au...

Anyway, I suppose LA should be looking at this mirror and they need
to decide how to feed it. They may well be interested in your offer
to assist with debian.

Even though mirror.linux.org.au is several metres from my office, I
tend to use ftp.au.debian.org (in WA) or mirror.aarnet.edu.au (used
to be on the other side of ANU campus - but somewhere else these days,
I believe). Other colleagues use debian.anu.edu.au (in the next
building to where my office is) - not sure if it is accessible from


Bob Edwards.
