January's Debian mirrors update

It's been slightly over a month since December's update to http.debian.net. Since then, Debian's mirrors network has grown by 6 more archive mirrors. Many thanks to the Debian sponsors running them!

There are now about 370 archive mirrors serving it over http, an increase of 40 (12%) since April last year. The number of backports mirrors is now at 82, and 25 for archive.debian.org.

On the http.debian.net front there haven't been many changes since last month. Some major changes are in the works, but they didn't make it into January's code update. There were, however, a few issues with one of the hosts during the first couple of days of January. Apologies for the inconveniences it may have caused.

A new version of ftpsync addressing some issues should hopefully be released some time next month. Stay tuned to the debian-mirrors mailing list for a call for testers and probably a survey for mirror administrators.
