Since the creation of my personal Mandriva repository ( 10 months ago) the number of my RPMs did not cease to increase. Currently all RPMs and SRPMs from 2006.0 and 2007.0 take 383MiB of space.

So I decided to move the folder to, which is a 10GiB (yes, ten gibibyte, this is not a typo) free web space offered by Free, my ISP.

To do this smoothly, I’ve just set up a generic 301 redirection thanks to Apache. This is the only line I added to my root .htaccess file to enable this:

Redirect permanent /static/repository

This move will normally be completely silent for you. So please, let me now if something bad happend while you play with my repository.
