Greetings lovely community,
I know the EndeavourOS team is busy working hard on the latest .iso release (wish y’all good luck and take all the time you need btw!), but I also had an idea that could possibly be considered in the future. Now I am not aware of any road map or timeline for EndeavourOS, so I don’t know if this has already been internally asked/discussed, but most distros that I have used have had a mirrors list status repository page on their website (i.e. synced/out of synced repo status). There is already the Arch mirrors repo status here: https://archlinux.org/mirrors/status/ which is very useful for all the main Arch repos, but there is one lacking for the EndeavourOS repos I’ve noticed.
I dare say it may be worthwhile to include an EndeavourOS mirrors status repo page on the website at some point in the future. For myself, I would find it very useful (i.e. I’d check it at least once a week), but for the average user I am not sure how much or how little they may use it. So the work vs reward for it may or may not be of any true significance for the team. Nonetheless if the work to generate something like that and maintain it is minimal, I would find it a very welcoming addition to the website. I’ve got some examples below of a few distros that already do this for their repos. Now it’s my own humble opinion that this is not something that is mission critical by any means, so it’s exclusion wouldn’t be any kind of deal breaker, I simply think it’s an additional good resource to have, if it makes sense for the team. Thanks for reading and I appreciate any insight or feedback into the idea.
