The Linux Documentation Project wishes its readers a happy year 2005.
There were some troubles on our servers which made it impossible for our mirror maintainers to synchronize. The Ibiblio support team assures us that everything is running OK now. Remember that you have to use a command similar to the following in order to start the synchronization process:
rsync -avz --delete ftp.ibiblio.org::ldp_mirror /your_path_to/LDP
In January, all maintainers will be contacted again to check that their mirror and contact information is still up to date and that their mirrors are running in sync.
The Printed Books section will be cleaned out. If you know about any printed versions (original or translations) of TLDP documents, let us know: title and/or ISBN of the publication, author, publisher, short book or document content if available.
If you need a good XML diff tool, Ari Makela recommends trying xmldiff: http://www.logilab.org/projects/xmldiff.
This is the list of sites that have started mirroring The LDP:
