Someone has asked me to provide a way to download Mesa releases by HTTP instead of FTP. This person says FTP is blocked at his site.
I temporarily set up a link (http://people.freedesktop.org/~brianp/mesa/) for him which was made with a symlink in my home directory to /srv/ftp.freedesktop.org/pub/mesa
But ideally, we'd have something more along the lines of http://www.freedesktop.org/mesa/ Is this possible?
Hm, cf. the recent discussion on hosting docs, we'd be more than happy to just shift mesa3d.org itself over if that would help? Could make it easier to automatically regenerate/publish docs etc.
No problem if not, of course; can easily just create another directory on www.fd.o.
Brian, could you please respond to Daniel's question here?
(Note that https://mesa.freedesktop.org/archive/ has been active for a while now; the base site just redirects to SourceForge.)
Brian - ping?
I'll add a link in the Mesa docs to https://mesa.freedesktop.org/archive/ for HTTP downloads. I think we can close this bug since we have that.
I think I would like to move mesa3d.org from SourceForge to freedesktop.org, but I'm just too busy right now. I'll file a new bug report for that when I get to it.
Sounds great. If you have a dump of the SF content somewhere, I can move it in place and sort out the config, then it's just a matter of changing DNS. Thanks!
