whereas the older MX.Debian mirror lacks some recent upgrades.

Great indeed. I don't know how the new one is sync'ed but the NZ Debian mirror was/is often a day behind the US.

@Gordon Cooper:

1. We agreed that he updates 4hourly from our top shot mirror Princeton U in the USA (40gbps)
2. Princeton U updates every hour from MX Utah
-> so by any means you have latest state in NZ in 5-6 hrs

He also says some other mirrors there take days to respond and weeks for resolution. Resolution for his mirrors is usually 6 hours

His available bandwidth is 2.5Gbps with an availability to grow to 20Gbps under load

Both nodes in Auckland and Christchurch are now up

@ aledie Thanks you, that answers my query about the sync.

Now that both Auckland and Christchurch are up, will there be a separate line for each one in the Repo listing? It would be better for users
in most of the North Island to choose Auckland.

@Gordon Cooper: no separate line needed, the URL address redirects you to the closest server/ node of those 2. It's how I understand it.

We will change the title in repo manager to NZ/ Auckland & Christchurch to not confuse users
