This mirror status checker determines whether CSC mirror is up-to-date with upstream.
How To Run
A configuration file may be provided through standard input. Without a configuration file, execute
python main.py. By default, all the available distributions will be checked. With a configuration file, execute
python main.py < name_of_config_file.in, for example,
python main.py < example.in. In this case, only the distributions listed in the configuration file will be checked.
if we can just view their repo online, we only have to remember the link for their repo and then check the latest timestamp in their repo the same way we check ours
even if the date relies on a specific file in their repo, we can still find the right link for it
to find repos of the mirrored projects to check, just search "projectName mirrors"
not done: damnsmalllinux: http://distro.ibiblio.org/damnsmall/ this project seems abandoned, candidate for brute force looping debian-backports: no public repo, no timestamp, no mirror tracker debian-volatile: no public repo, no timestamp, no mirror tracker linuxmint: no public repo linuxmint-packages pool: http://rsync-packages.linuxmint.com/pool/ macPorts: only distfiles has public repo, no timestamp, too large to loop through NetBSD: http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/ has public repo, no timestamp, web directory hard to loop through, no mirror tracker opensuse: http://download.opensuse.org/ has public repo, a possible timestamp called latest in history, our mirror doesn't have this file tho, no mirror tracker puppylinux: https://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/ has public repo, no timestamp, too hard to loop through, not likely to have a mirror tracker racket: no public repo, no timestamp, no mirror status tracker raspberry pi: https://archive.raspberrypi.org/ no timestamp, no mirror status tracker sagemath: don't know how to deal with this, it's a website salt stack: don't know how to deal with this, it's a website scientific: https://scientificlinux.org/downloads/sl-mirrors/ would be easy to scrape the mirror status page, except that csc is not listed here ubuntu-ports-releases: https://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ has public repo, no timestamp, no status tracker x.org: https://www.x.org/releases/ no timestamp, but candidate for brute force looping since it has few folders, no status tracker Xiph: no timestamp, too big to loop through, no status tracker xubuntu-releases
