Positive Internet mirror for download.rockbox.org

Hi Guys,

Last week, our main mirror server blew up and we moved all the mirrors
to another box with a completely different IP address. I updated our
"rockbox.positive-internet.com" A record to reflect this but I've just
realised that your download.rockbox.org DNS entries are A records and
not CNAME records so this hasn't changed.

So, in short, can you please update your DNS so that the one A record in
the RR DNS corresponding to our server:

download.rockbox.org. A 80.87.134.17

becomes

download.rockbox.org. A 216.116.68.8

or

download.rockbox.org CNAME rockbox.positive-internet.com

Not sure what happens if you mix A records and CNAME records when you're
doing round-robin DNS like this, but currently connections to that
original IP will be failing.

I am hoping that we can restore the mirror machine on that old IP
address but this probably wont be for a few more days.

Kind regards,

Stephen Harker
Technical Team Manager
