Gentoo rsync Mirrors

Gentoo is hosted by many mirrors around the globe. Selecting a mirror that is geographically near you may help speed up Portage tree updates.

Using rsync Mirrors
The mirrors listed on this page are used for updating your Portage tree.
To use an rsync mirror, set the sync-uri variable in the [gentoo] section of repos.conf to a URL from the list below. More information is available in our Wiki.
Source Mirrors
We also have a second type of mirrors that you use for fetching installation files as well as package sources (configured via GENTOO_MIRRORS). They are available on a separate page.

We would like to thank the many organizations and individuals that are providing mirroring services to the Gentoo project. If you would like to contribute a mirror, please consult the relevant documentation.
