This task is in the list of maemo.org development proposals, please help planning and getting it ready for a sprint. Put a note on the talk page if you're interested in helping work on this task.
Please see the talk page for discussion.

In the interest of making it as easy as possible for people to make copies of the maemo.org repositories, an rsync server should be set up.

Sample code:

$ cat /etc/rsyncd.conf 
  path = /var/www/repository.maemo.org
  comment = Extras Repositories for Maemo 5 (Fremantle)
  read only = yes
  use chroot = yes
  max connections=256
  list = yes
  uid = nobody
  gid = rsync
  dont compress = *.gz *.tgz *.zip *.z *.rpm *.deb *.iso *.bz2 *.tbz

[edit] Done

I have set this up, but we need to poke a hole in the firewall for outside parties to reach the rsync server. -- Jeremiah
