enlistments stuck after temp. failure

Hi,

the eurynome.mirbsd.org enlistments,
such as mirbsd, seem to be stuck. We
had a misconfiguration in the cvs
pee-server for a while a few weeks or
so ago, but that has been fixed long
since. The downloader seems to not
have recognised that. (This applies
to almost all projects with an en-
listment on eurynome.)

I'd suggest exponential retries (1,
2, 4, 8 days, biweekly after that)
on server failures (misconfiguration,
EUNREACH due to system failure or
maintenance, etc.) to aid against
such problems in the future. For
example, eurynome is a VM whose
host is rebooted every once in a
while (say twice in 3 months) but
that's out of my control, so we'll
obviously have a little downtime.

Still broken, e.g. one of the mksh enlistments too. https://www.ohloh.net/p/mirbsd/enlistments I already mentioned.

Hi Thorsten,

We do perform exponential retries, with periods very similar to your example.

This particular repostiory (mirbsd) was manually killed (by me) because the server seemed to "hang" and leave our downloads in a stuck state for days on end.

I've rescheduled the mirbsd updates. I'll keep an eye on it today.

Thanks,
Robin

Thanks, I saw the cvs processes running, and they completed. Now,
the two mirports enlistments and one of the mksh ones, and maybe others (basically all on eurynome, I suppose).

The cvs process does appear to be very slow, judging from the server side view. I wonder what you’re actually doing?

My offer of rsync access to the repo so that you can do that kind of things locally still stands (although I’d have to break up some of the symlink farms I created, for example with mksh, for that).

MirPorts and one of the mksh ones still fail.

Hi Thorsten,

We received this error:

cvsnt -d :pserver:peed:pee-server@eurynome.mirbsd.org:/peed/repos/new rlog -b -r1: 'mirports'
mirports.rlog failed: cvsnt [rlog aborted]: chroot: /anoncvs/bin/cvs: Permission denied

I'll schedule the repositories for another try.

Thanks,
Robin

Yes, that was my configuration problem
I had already fixed quite some time ago.

Now there are still some failing repos,
for example one of the mksh ones. The
MirPorts repo ran through.
