when to start mirroring 18?

Postby ivan-the-idiot » Tue Jun 21, 2016 5:21 pm

I run an apt mirror at work for my students to get updates, etc. from.

When should I start mirroring 18?

Well, seeing as Linux Mint 18.0 hasn't been released yet no one can answer that question.

Guess I'll do it now, and when the release hits my mirror will already be up to date.

Ivan - it may pay to wait, until LM18 is at least at RC1 level,
- rather than at the current Beta stage.
ie: in another few weeks, time.

Exactly. The time is not now. Who is going to want to download a RC ISO when the final ISO is available?

Running an apt mirror now is fine. If any issues are found in Linux Mint 18 beta the fixes to packages will go into the repository as well as onto the final ISO release. So as long as you'll keep the mirror in sync, it's fine.

The same goes BTW for using the Linux Mint 18 beta. For enthusiasts, early adopters, or those that just can't wait as long as they keep up with updates their installation will be upgraded to the final release through Update Manager. If there is anything more to do to upgrade from beta to final release it will be noted in the final release announcement. I can recall only one release over the past 5 years where you needed to do anything more than apply level 1-2 upgrades in Update Manager.
