Motivation
Since it was announced that maemo.org will receive funding from nokia until the end of 2012, I've set up personal mirror of N8x0 repositories (chinook and diablo). The older repositories were not included.

My inspiration came from the Future of Maemo 5 Fremantle posted by pali.

I can not provide public access to my mirror due to the legal and practical reasons, so I've decided to provide apt-mirror configuration files, so everybody can reproduce the official repositories.

Introduction
Please note that stock apt-mirror 0.48 is unable to parse properly Sources within chinook extras. This is due to the pygtkeditor package which has extra line in it's Files section. In order to address that I've added a single line which skips the line if splitting does not return 3 components (hash size file)

By using the the modified apt-mirror, the replication was successfully finished.

Total size of the repositories is 28GB, which includes i386, armel and sources.

Instructions
  1. download modified apt-mirror.
  2. download mirror.list.gz.
  3. gunzip mirror.list.gz
  4. gunzip apt-mirror.gz
  5. adjust the base_path within mirror.list to point to path with enough disk space.
  6. run ./apt-mirror mirror.list

Additional repositories
The mirror list contains the deb lines for additional repositories from community members. These repositories were commented out. Additional repositories can be added at any time (you have to restart apt-mirror, once you modify configuration).

The additional repositories were obtained from: http://www.gronmayer.com/it/.

Notes
1. You can always stop the process by hitting CTRL+C
2. You can always resume the process by re-running apt-mirror with same parameter
Attached Files
File Type: gz apt-mirror.gz (5.5 KB, 288 views)
File Type: gz mirror.list.gz (1.5 KB, 285 views)

Is the yearly cost to run maemo.org known and is it possible to get community donations to keep it going? Maybe slap ad banners all over the forums to help out?

I think the council is still trying to get a figure from Nemein. Theoretically things should start moving a bit faster once the Foundation is in place, watch this thread.

It's hard because almost every maemo person at Nokia has left, but I think we still have the support from the Nokia side to get it done. Their customer support still gets inquiries about the N900 and they see value in being able to redirect people to a community website operated by Hildon Foundation. The business side also seems to not have objections to extending to us the redistribution license at maemo.org for the parts necessary to maintain the software, but legal hasn't cleared it yet.

Nemein is more uncertain and somewhat unresponsive to maemo.org council up to this point. I am now having Nokia go at them. I think it will get worked on, but the budget is a big obstacle. They have a nice contract with Nokia and I don't see how the finances line up after 12/31/2012.

No. This just means we'll be able to continue to use the closed source bits on our own.

Is it legal to "backup" it on a dropbox service ?
