UCF, which Brad already mentioned in an earlier email, is running a proxy
for things like Gentoo distfiles and debian packages, the address is
proxy.ucf.ics.uci.edu, the port is 3128. It is restricted to the campus
network (126.96.36.199/16 and 188.8.131.52/16), which includes resnet (ie,
Middle Earth, Mesa Court, AV, CV, PV and maybe even Vista del Campo.
There has been talk about running proper mirrors for stuff, and we do have
the resources for it, but the guy that wanted to run it lost interest and
so it never happened. If you want to pick up the ball, you are more than
welcome to do so. Come to one of our meetings (CS 423, Thursdays at 7pm),
or join the mailinglists at https://www.ucf.ics.uci.edu/mailman/listinfo/.
For this kind of think, I recommend unix-admin.
