The UNIX Files

About the service

The reason behind the repository is to offer a way to archive and/or mirror the file base either for personal reasons or through fear that The UNIX Files may vanish (which it will not, though). The repository also enables users to upload software not yet on The UNIX Files and by doing that helping our archiving efforts.

All the files on the repository are synchronized every three (3) hours beween our mirrors.
