Thumbs up Aminet is Back !!!

Aminet is back with a new layout http://www.aminet.net/ which in fact use the amirepo interface

Go an upload your latest production

--------------------
More complete info from http://www.amiganews.de

Aminet back online, volunteers needed
To compensate the breakdown of us.aminet.net, a new Aminet main server has been established which can be reached at www.aminet.net or main.aminet.net. Aminet now uses a completely new web interface written Nicolas Mendoza, originally implemented for amirepo.net. As most of the internal scripts aswell as the new web interface had to be adapted or have been rewritten from scratch, there still might be some rough edges, smaller bugs or dead links left - but Aminet is working again and uploads are getting processed.

Please note that currently only the main server is working properly, mirrors are not being updated yet and uploads at mirror sites are ignored. This will be addressed later on - for now please stick to the URLs given above to access Aminet. If you want to upload to Aminet, use your favourite FTP client to connect to main.aminet.net and upload to the "new" directory as outlined in Aminet's help files.

Urban Mueller, founder and main administrator of Aminet, is going to retire as soon as the new infrastructure is in place. He will be hosting the main server but will no longer be part of the administration team. The exact details of Aminet's future administration structure are not decided yet, but amiga-news.de is currently assembling a new team that will be responsible for Aminet in the future.

Volunteers wanted

We are searching for one or two volunteers that could assist us in moderating uploads. An upload moderator should meet the following requirements:
  • Basic knowledge about Unix shells (moving, deleting, renaming files).
  • Broadband internet access.
  • English speaker.
If you fullfill these requirements and would like to become a part of the new Aminet team, please contact us at team@amiga-news.de.

Thumbs up Finally After a very LONG WAIT

The reason to believe there are still people creating for real Amigas

Outside of this board that is

In some ways it answers another thread that was posted over how long the majority of us intend to use real Amigas

As long as there is chance to try run fresh software and hacks just to try them out

Question Maybe I misunderstand you Apex

But since the running of such a system is a volantary unpaid choice , then it is hardly suprising if after so long a gap in it's availability . Re-Establishing mirror sites and recruiting help to sort out any backlog will surely take time

In all fairness to those that have resurected this FREE service the fact that there are some NEW updates shows promise and unless you yourself are in a position to add eiether moral support or resources to assist then IMHO it is not time to critise its Official return of Aminet
