1.  Official mirrors

The Gentoo infrastructure team maintains serveral rsync mirrors. This rotation is called rsync.gentoo.org. The SYNC variable in /etc/make.conf is set to this rotation by default. These mirrors are located globally and may not be the fastest for your location, however, they are very reliable. Please do not use a mirror in this rotation directly, instead only use the rotation.

2.  Community mirrors

The following is the listing of individual Portage rsync mirrors that are run by the community. Community mirrors come and go, but they are monitored to make sure that they are up to date. It is advised to use a rotation instead of a single mirror directly. This helps spread out the load and provides a failsafe in case a specific mirror is offline.
