Description mfv 2021-04-20 17:36:11 UTC

I used to be able to monitor the status of the package build process for amd64 r12.2 at this address:


But this site is no longer available.

In addition I used to be able to fetch a file to monitor the progress of the build process at this address:


But that file is also not available.

I would be interested to know the new addresses that are/will be used as replacments.

The unavailability of the URL and JSON file occurred shortly after the move to git.  In any event, kudos to those who migrated the port tree to git.  I recently converted my local tree and use gitup for cloning and pulling.  It works quite well.

Cheers, Marek

The builders moved to ipv6 only.

I moved the package builders to an IPv6-only VLAN last week.  If you have IPv6 connectivity, you can still access them directly.  I still need to add a proxy for these on the legacy internet.  I'll try to get around to that this week.

Hello Philip,  Thanks for your reply of last April.  Since then I took your advice and set up IPv6 through tunelling.  It worked and I was able to access the package build site.  However, I was forced to change my ISP to Verizon/FIOS as Verizon will no longer repair their copper-based telephone system.

Since my move to FIOS I have not been able to access  

As mentioned in your last comment, has the proxy been set up as yet?

With thanks, Marek

This was fixed a while ago:

https://pkg-status.freebsd.org/${BUILDER}/ provides a dual-stack proxy to the many package builders.  The URL http://beefy6.nyi.freebsd.org/data/122amd64-default/.data.json is also available as https://pkg-status.freebsd.org/beefy6/data/122amd64-default/.data.json.

I'll check if we can change the URLs in the build logs to point at the proxy rather than at the builders directly.  Thanks for reporting this.
