Internet News   Internet News : Aminet - A new start
   posted by Orgin on 13-Feb-2005 16:52:36 (2770 reads)
Aminet back online, volunteers needed

To compensate the fall out of us.aminet.net, a new Aminet main server has been established which can be reached at www.aminet.net or main.aminet.nett. 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.

@Orgin:

Patience is not your strong point, is it?

Here's the announcement, could you please replace the text of the news item with this one:

I like the interface (especially the advanced search function). I hope you're still restoring files (only 8 items in mods/mpg for example).

That's great news! Good work on getting the new site up and running - it's looking pretty snazzy already

... and thanks to Urban for all the work he's put in over the years; without Aminet, would the Amiga world have been as rich? I don't think so. All the best for the future!

Wasn't Orgins fault, I edited the publish date by 1 day, didn't know how long to repress it for.

Apologies.

That's what I thought too, when I visited the site. A nice a Amiga logo or the good old Aminet one, would be better.

It looks great, but beyond to (name, path, size, dates and description) it would want a new column that indicated the operating system (OS 3.x, OS4, MOS and so on)

why? 3.x should run everywhere, os4 and mos are usualy part of the name like WOS or PUP archives. there's also no description about os 1.x or 2.x.
