Introduction

The goal of this machine is to provide an infrastructure for unofficial architectures until they are integrated in the main Debian archive. This way porters could spend their time porting packages instead of fighting with the infrastructure.

The 2013 archive signing key will expire at the end of the month. I've created the 2014 one, uploaded it to the keyservers, and uploaded a new version of the debian-ports-archive-keyring package. This key is already used to sign the archive in addition to the 2013 one, which will be deactivated at the end of the month.

The key is:

Due to an increasing popularity of debian-ports.org, the server has been quite loaded in the last days, to the point of not being able to run the daily archive install.

To address the issue, the critical parts of mini-dak have been rewritten in Python. rsync has also been access has been limited to push mirrors only. The server now seems to handle the load correctly, at least for the last day.

If you were using the rsync access, please use one of the push mirrors instead. We are working on restoring the access on another machine.

Sun, 01 May 2011 19:53:42 +0200

debian-ports.org has moved to a new machine, which should solve our disk space issues and secure the hosting for the future. This machine is now hosted by Debian and is called leda.debian.net. Thanks to DSA for making that possible.

The new SSH host keys are:

    (DSA) 1024 92:81:ff:30:c5:fb:85:92:70:8c:aa:d0:ea:3e:0e:c9
    (RSA) 2048 44:ea:d0:12:49:03:7b:e1:ba:80:d3:cd:a4:03:76:2b
  

I would like to thanks Skyrock/Telefun for hosting the previous machines in the last 3 years.

For various reasons, the debian-ports.org machine now runs with an UTC timezone. This means the archive runs now happen at 06:02, 12:02, 18:02 and 00:02 UTC.

Wed, 28 Jul 2010 17:41:46 +0200

debian-ports now runs the latest postgresql-based version of wanna-build. The status pages are now using pgstatus instead of status.

Tue, 15 Jun 2010 11:03:34 +0200

Thanks to eXMeritus we now have a debian-ports mirror in the United-States.

Tue, 25 May 2010 19:05:27 +0200

The debian-ports-archive-keyring package has been accepted into the archive. It contains the debian-ports archive signing key, and will be updated when a new key is generated.

Wed, 12 May 2010 08:26:52 +0200

When the machine has been moved to Skyrock/Telefun, the native IPv6 connectivity has been lost and replaced by a 6to4 address. This protocol is not fully supported by SixXS, causing problems from people accessing the debian-ports.org machine through SixXS. To solve this issue, it is now using a SiXXS tunnel for the IPv6 connectivity. The DNS has been updated in consequence.

Following the announcement of Debian Lenny, I have made a snapshot of the debian-ports.org archive at the date of the release. Please also note that a weekly snapshot of the archive is also available.

Fri, 31 Jan 2009 07:04:02 +0100

The archive key as expired today. I've created a new one, uploaded it to the keyservers, and it's the one that will start to be used for new signatures.

m68k's unstable archive and wanna-build is now hosted on ftp.debian-ports.org. It was previously hosted on ftp.debian.org.

Mon, 21 Apr 2008 13:41:29 +0200

During the last week-end, debian-ports.org has been moved to a new machine, which is faster and has a lot more disk space. The IP address has changed but the DNS records have been updated, so as long as you don't use the IP directly everything should still work.

The machine is now capable of accepting new ports, currently SH4 seems to be the next one. To accept a new port, we require that a minimal set of .deb packages has been ported, for example enough to run a buildd. Don't hesistate to ask for more details.

I would like to thanks Skyrock/Telefun for hosting the machine, Debian for buying it, and our former DPL, Sam Hocevar, for making this possible.

Wed, 16 Apr 2008 13:49:43 +0200

A git repository of the tools used to run Debian Ports is now available.

Tue, 15 Apr 2008 23:44:27 +0200

http://incoming.debian-ports.org/buildd/ now contains a copy of the latest uploaded packages from both http://incoming.debian.org/ and http://incoming.debian-ports.org/, in an apt-getable repository. The primarly goal is to provide autobuilders a way to be able to start building packages without having to wait for the next mirror push.

Only the sources packages are publically apt-getable. If you run a build daemon, you can ask for access to apt-getable binary packages. Otherwise, just be patient!

Put the following line into your /etc/apt/sources.list:

    deb-src http://incoming.debian-ports.org/buildd unstable main
    deb-src http://incoming.debian-ports.org/buildd experimental main

Due to abuse (an IP downloading a .iso file with more than 220 connections) the maximum number of connections per IP for a .iso file has been limited to 25.

Sun, 02 Dec 2007 23:41:23 +0100

The machine is now accessible through native IPv6.
