Hello,

Is there a wiki or recommended way to download a repository ?
Or is it just a matter of choosing a close mirror and then connecting with client ftp and copying the full contents ?

Thanks,
ranran

I assume you mean all the sources?

I found this - http://www.digitalsurvival.us/2014/10/06/how-to-setup-a-local-gentoo-distfiles-mirror.html

There's also this - https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Infrastructure/Mirrors/Source - if you're thinking of contributing a mirror

It's generally bad netiquette to do so, though. What's the reason you want to download the whole mirror?

Yes, that's where I hope this conversation will go or else to, "I want to donate a mirror."

Hi,

I need it becuase I need the capability to install new packages on computer which are not connected to internet.

by the way, what's the expected size of current repository ? Is it above 400G ?

Thanks,
ranran

@ranran,

Please look into what you get when you run emerge with the --pretend and --fetchonly options. This will give you a list of files you need to download along with the URLs where they are available. You can then take that list to a machine that has network access to download just what you need.

ranran,

You really want sneakernet.
Gentoo cannot legally mirror all the files you way want, so getting the whole Gentoo source code repo will leave holes.
