Requesting rsync access to archive.archlinux.org

Who runs archive.archlinux.org? I'd like to pull a complete file listing (yes, I know this will be large) to be able to track when certain packages were uploaded, and find older versions. I'd publish any research openly.

At the moment, I get

rsync --list-only rsync://archive.archlinux.org/archive

@ERROR: access denied to archive from UNKNOWN ([my IPv6 address])

It's on archive.org and you can probably use their ia client: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Arch_L … al_Archive

Okay, thanks - it'd still be interesting to know what the process for getting rsync access is.

I think grabbing the full dataset would be thousands of requests to archive.org.

It is impossible to pull a complete file listing from archive.archlinux.org. Packages older than ~2-3 years have been removed and are only available on archive.org.

For archive.org you'll need at least one request per package.

Yep, understood.
