RNL Software Mirroring Service

This software mirror is provided by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Tecnico Lisboa on a Gigabit uplink, accessible both through IPv4 and IPv6. We are happy to mirror additional software archives upon request, subject to space constraints on our mirror server. If there's a software archive for which a local mirror would be useful to you and it isn't listed here, please let us know.

[extra]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/extra/os/ARCH
