mirror.ac.za availability (2022/08/02)

mirror.ac.za's disk pool suffered corruption, and so this server has been rebuilt. Individual mirrors will slowly be re-added and resynchronised over the next few days, prioritising those mirrors that see the highest traffic, have the most impact, or are relatively small. We anticipate that it may take up-to a week for all mirrors to be completely restored, and apologise for any inconvenience in the interim.

Please note that certain mirrors may not be restored. Examples include those where the upstream project has discontinued mirroring (e.g. PHP) or where they're seldom utilised by South African users and aren't themselves official mirrors (particularly if there is another local, official mirror). South African university users who feel strongly about restoring these may contact us once this notice disappears.
