Better mirror redirection

Item posted by Sylvain Beucler <Beuc> on Thu 26 Aug 2010 06:54:38 PM UTC.

Brian Gough just improved mirror redirects in the download area: now you're redirected to the nearest mirror only when downloading a file, you stay on the reference server when browsing directories :)
There is also a page footer warning people about the up-to-24h mirror replication delay.

Thanks (posted by Antonio Diaz Diaz, Sun 29 Aug 2010 06:26:19 PM UTC)

Thanks Brian.
This is indeed an improvement over the old 404 when the mirror was not yet up to date.

Antonio.
