I reported last week that this was not working. It still fails with the
following error message:

~ # rsync -rltvz docsnap.sk.FreeBSD.org::docsnap /usr/share/doc/
rsync: failed to connect to docsnap.sk.FreeBSD.org: Connection refused
(61) rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(124)

I was under the impression that someone was looking into it. Is there
any estimated time for the link to be fixed?


        A long-range plan whose merit cannot be evaluated until sometime
        after those creating it have left the organization.
