Could Robby or whoever looks after mirrorlist update the Norwegian mirror


I see that https://mirrors.slackware.com/mirrorlist/ lists http://ftp.slackware.no/slackware/ which sadly no longer works. Instead the URL http://ftp.uninett.no/slackware/ can be used.

Ah and I see that the mirrors listed in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors on Slackware 14.2 use the domain ftp1.uninett.no, that should also be updated to ftp.uninett.no. I have no idea why Uninett feels the need to update these domain names.

Do you know who curates the mirror list? The mirror by switch.ch in Switzerland was closed down, too. I reported this in the requests thread:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ml#post5926819

but to this date the new mirror hasn't made it into current nor 14.2. I'm not sure whether this was the right place to report this.

EDIT: Sorry, I just realized that we're not talking about the same mirror lists. Switzerland was removed (but not replaces) in the web version. Feel free to ignore me.
