Latest News: Now offering the complete CD-Image mirror for Ubuntu releases

Open Source Software We Mirror
The list

The list below contains the various open source projects that we mirror. How do we decide what to mirror? Well University Computing Services runs 90% on Open Source Software, the projects that we use on our servers and clients will naturally take first priority. Second priority goes to other projects that UCU students are interested in accessing easily. And finally, the software that the public has interest in. Since our ISP UTL is peering at the UiXP [] we hope other open source users in the country can benefit from this mirror as well.



The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects, which provide software products for the public good.
