Mirmon does seem like a very good option.


I have installed and mostly configured it on my VPS. I have not yet figured out how to get a timestamp in the following format without adding a file like this one to the mirrors: http://psg.mtu.edu/pub/gnu/mirror-updated-timestamp.txt

I figure that the hash files are updated every time the mirror is, so I'd rather just use that. I think it should be possible with wget and date - I just ran out of time today.

The software called "mirmon" might help you with that.
They use it for monitoring GNU mirrors.
It looks like this http://download.savannah.gnu.org/mirmon/gnu/

Kind regards,

Write or find a script that checks if mirrors are available, up to date and complete (architectures and suites).
