Spiralinear.org mirror is no more...
« on: 12. September 2013, 13:15:09 »
Here is a copy of the PM I sent to Phil:

Hi Phil,

faolan has removed the Manjaro repos from Spiralinear.org as we have found that just.host who hosts the site for us imposes a 200,000 file limit & we had 257,000 files. Apparently after the repos were removed we only had a few thousand files.

So I'm sorry to say that Manjaro has now lost its Spiralinear.org mirror. At least we did provide some help in earlier times when there were less mirrors & could be a bit of help then.

Sorry I can't help Manjaro anymore in this way, unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it.

Thanks ringo, it now makes more sense as to why there were so many files.
