Simply put: Gentoo does not run the last-mile edge of distfile distribution. $ dig @ns1.gentoo.org +noall +answer distfiles.gentoo.org IN A distfiles.gentoo.org. 7200 IN A 188.8.131.52 distfiles.gentoo.org. 7200 IN A 184.108.40.206 distfiles.gentoo.org. 7200 IN A 220.127.116.11 $ echo 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 |fmt -1 |xargs -n1 dig +short -x ftp-osl.osuosl.org. ftp-nyc.osuosl.org. ftp-chi.osuosl.org. And historically also TDS & another provider. Plus all of the regional mirrors that don't even have .gentoo.org hostnames. I would like to replace the legacy http://distfiles.gentoo.org/ functionality with a redirection service, at which point you could have partial data, but it answers a very different question than Goose. -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Dev, Infra Lead, Foundation Treasurer E-Mail : robb...@gentoo.org GnuPG FP : 11ACBA4F 4778E3F6 E4EDF38E B27B944E 34884E85 GnuPG FP : 7D0B3CEB E9B85B1F 825BCECF EE05E6F6 A48F6136
