Description Mateusz Kwiatkowski 2018-11-23 10:45:35 UTC
I’d like to report that one of polish mirrors is dead. It’s listed both in Handbook and in installer as ftp2.pl.freebsd.org.
It doesn’t have DNS record:

$ host ftp2.pl.freebsd.org
Host ftp2.pl.freebsd.org not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Also reported to hostmaster@pl.freebsd.org

Comment 1 Li-Wen Hsu freebsd_committer 2020-10-26 01:45:23 UTC
ftp2.pl is inactive and should be removed from the handbook until we have new mirror.
Comment 2 Guangyuan Yang freebsd_committer 2020-11-20 10:10:31 UTC
Confirmed that the mirror is no longer in the installer: https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/master/usr.sbin/bsdinstall/scripts/mirrorselect. Just remove the entries in the handbook and the website should be sufficient.
Comment 3 Guangyuan Yang freebsd_committer 2020-11-20 10:21:33 UTC
Actually, the en_US handbook no longer has this mirror - pt_BR one still has it. So we may need to wait for the language team to update the translated version.

In the meantime, disabling it in share/xml/mirrors.xml...
