Right now, points to, the front-end of
the build farm hosted at the MDC.

The previous setup was that mirrors
(the actual build farm front-end) using an nginx proxy:

This provides a bit of redundancy that we don’t have currently for

Thus, I’m thinking about using a similar setup, but hosting the mirror
on some Big Corp CDN or similar.  Chris Marusich came up with a setup
along these lines a while back:

Compared to Chris’s setup, given that ‘guix publish’ now provides
‘Cache-Control’ headers (that was not the case back then, see
caching in the proxy should Just Work.

I would like us to set up such a mirror for berlin and then have point to that.  The project should be able to pay the
hosting fees.


Would someone like to get started?  You’ll undoubtedly get all the
appreciation of each one of us and a beverage of your choice next time
we meet!  :-)
