Xin Li is setting up a cvsup mirror in China and he noted that it is
not possible to serve out FreeBSD and DragonFly from the same IP
because the same collection names are used.
I think this issue has come up before with others wanting to host
multiple cvsup repositories.
So what I think we need to do is to change our cvsup collection names
from cvs-BLAH to dragonfly-cvs-BLAH. e.g. 'cvs-src' becomes
I would like all of our existing repositories to start using both
sets of names with the aim of eventually switching over entirely to
the new names. I have already done this on the master server crater.
Once enough mirrors have the new names up and running I will change
the example supfile and the one on the web site to use the new names.
So, to everyone running mirrors:
* Change the cvsup collection names you are using to 'pull' the data
from crater from 'cvs-BLAH' to 'dragonfly-cvs-BLAH'.
* Dup your existing 'cvs-*/' directories in /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/
to 'dragonflycvs-*/', so both exist.
Note that you still only need one actual copy of the data... that is,
both the cvs-* and dragonfly-cvs-* collections pull from the same
(unchanged) CVS tree.
