Quantum's Mirrors

This is an experimental mirror service in Toronto, Canada for some software I either use or think would prove useful to other people.

ArchLinux mirror

To use this mirror specifically, you need to add these lines somewhere into your pacman configuration:

## Quantum
Server = http://mirror.quantum5.ca/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch

You can add this into /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist. Put this at the top of the file to prefer this mirror.

If you are feeling really bold, you can put it in /etc/pacman.conf, before the Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist line. This will use this mirror as the default. Example:

Server = http://mirror.quantum5.ca/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Note that HTTP is used since Arch Linux packages are PGP-signed. However, you can replace http with https if you really want to.
