A configuration file may be provided through standard input. Without a configuration file, execute `python`. By default, all the available distributions will be checked. With a configuration file, execute `python <`, for example, `python <`. In this case, only the distributions listed in the configuration file will be checked.
## dev notes
How the program works: We first have a general mirror check class called which checks whether the timestamp in the directory of the mirror is in-sync with the upstream. Then, for each CSC mirror, a class is built which inherits from the general class but often overrides the original check function with a check function specific to the mirror. A few big themes are: some check a mirror status tracker provided by the project mirrored; some check all the Release files for each version in a distro etc. website information which all the mirror checker classes need is stored in the data.json file.
Future notes: Because many of the mirror checkers are built very specific to each mirror. A slight change in the way the project manages their mirror-related websites, public repos etc. can drastically influence whether the mirror checker works correctly or not. These problems are also unfortunately very hard to detect, so it's important that CSC actively maintain the mirror checker so that it works as intended in the long term.
Extra notes: A test client for individual mirror checker classes is provided as To use it, simply change all occurrences of the imported project class
