Dotsrc.org provides a set of mirrors of some of the most used and important Free and open-source software. If you think we have missed a project let us know at email@example.com and we will see what we can do.
All mirrors are accessible via:
- HTTP at http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/
- HTTPS at https://mirrors.dotsrc.org/
- FTP at ftp://mirrors.dotsrc.org/
- anonymous rsync and rsync over TLS at rsync://mirrors.dotsrc.org/
Please take a look at them to get an up-to-date list on what is available, and send us an email if we are missing something you would like to clone.
All mirrors are updated at least daily.
Mirroring from us
Fell free to pull any mirror from us. For a list of mirrors available via rsync, simply do a
rsync over TLS
rsync does by itself not support TLS, but we can simply outsource TLS handling to the
The rsync authors have made a short script to do exactly that.
This is how you use it to get a listing from our server:
wget https://download.samba.org/pub/rsync/openssl-rsync chmod +x openssl-rsync rsync --rsh=./openssl-rsync rsync://mirrors.dotsrc.org
It is wise to read the script before executing it blindly.
