[Discourse.ros.org] [Packaging and Release Management] Can we fix rsync for packages.ros.org
Yes I know you want people to use apt-mirror but I can't. I need to run a mirror on a production machine that is CentOS based and has tight restrictions. This mirror uses rsync to mirror third party repositories. This is efficient and trusted.
I can rsync all parts of ros.org except for the packages because the packages directory is a link that is not followed by the rsync server. You can test this using the command: rsync -azv rsync.osuosl.org::ros/packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu /tmp/ros
I have made a request to osuosl.org to fix this since all their other hosted projects support rsync but they have implied that the server is controlled by OSRF. So can you guys fix this?

@tfoote: would you perhaps have an update on this `rsync`-related topic as well?
Similar to @boilerbots, my university's mirror admins (TU Delft) prefer (require) `rsync` as it integrates with the rest of the mirroring infrastructure (Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, etc). Hence the question.
Edit: should this thread be moved to the `Mirrors` category btw?
