Hi u! At the summit this year we thought we would be able to do this by the end of 2017. I'm still confident this can happen! How about we schedule two 2-3h Mumble working sessions in December about it? I'm confident one such session could be sufficient to come up with a good idea of how to solve the problem, and the second session could be about documenting it properly and starting the implementation work. If you agree, let's schedule this over private email.

Hello,

I was reading https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/HTTP_mirror_pool/#index6h2 following the january monthly report. Great plan !

However, I feel a bit concern by adding a strong dependancy to a mirror we don't control and hardcoding it. What would happen for example for upgrades if this mirror become inaccessible / have to remove tails / ... ? Could you please clarify its role for upgrades ? Would other mirrors be checked if it become unaccessible ?

Tails Upgrader does not use the fallback mirror but the regular mirror pool.

Thanks for the clarification ! I was missleading by the mention of the tails upgrader in the blueprint.
