Who can request packages?  Any one can request packages to be mirrored.  The Linux-Patching group will determine whether or not to mirror the package based upon the following criteria:  size, difficulty to mirror, expected frequency of use by the community.

Who manages the service? Members of the CLAS Linux team and ITS Enterprise Infrastructure - Technical Platform Services team on a best effort basis.

Availability/patching window?  The mirrors site may be unavailable between 1pm-5pm every other Monday for patching or other maintenance.


To request a package to be mirrored at http://mirrors.uiowa.edu/, send an email to linux-patching@iowa.uiowa.edu.  Please forward the approved technology review for the title being requested.
