Rsync mirroring of repositories


I’m not really sure where to post this, apologies if this is in the wrong location.

From my location (Belgium) the apt repositories are painfully slow (<300 kb/s). So I would like to mirror them. But I am wondering if it is possible to open up an rsync daemon at the Jellyfin repository server so I can fetch the whole repository from there (all distro’s, versions, …).

At the moment I am already mirroring some Debian & Ubuntu versions at (http & https). Server is hooked up to a 10 Gbit network, but I have limited its bandwidth to 15 MB/s at the moment.

Many thanks!

The repositories actually had way more traffic than expected recently - but not to worry, we’re considering an expansion to an EU mirror as well.

As @anthonylavado mentioned, this release especially has put a lot of traffic on our one small mirror server, which is located in Toronto.

Setting up global mirrors is definitely on my agenda for the near future (next few weeks).

At the same time, I’ll also make sure we open up public rsync access, so that anyone who wants to run a mirror, especially in places that we won’t be able to easily server via DigitalOcean, can set up alternatives. We can also set up a mirror list for those that become established to help users find a copy of the data local to them!

Thanks both of you for the response! I can imagine that the traffic is quite big, that’s why I offered to set up a mirror here in Belgium. But great to hear that this is being worked on!
A mirror list might also be a good idea. Perhaps something on the website that fetches a page from GitHub or so?

Let me know if you need any help or if you have an rsync server available! Also, many thanks for the awesome project!

A free mirror in denmark (good connection to EU) is They have redundant 10Gbit and allows external mirrors pull from it.
