LEG needs support on campus:
We’ve just upgraded the LEG mirror to a 10TiB ZFS disk array.
Also, thank you Graham Inggs (Engineering and Built Environment Faculty) for a RAM upgrade, and making this all happen.
The array is already half full, but should provide growing space for a couple more years.
Ubuntu 11.10 has released. Of course, we have it on our mirror, in the usual place:

Come and join us for a release party on Saturday
The LEG servers are having their IP Addresses renumbered, as part of a cleanup of the Chemical Engineering network. Hopefully you won’t notice this, but if you do notice any problems, please contact the LEG admins.
One issue we can’t deal with: Passive FTP won’t work for the next couple of days.

Clam is now running the latest Debian version, squeeze (which is also available on our mirror, naturally).

We are having some problems with our disk array, and have had to reboot the mirror server a few times today. We’ll do our best to get everything running smoothly again as soon as possible.
Mirroring is currently suspended.
UPDATE: Mirroring resumed. We are running on a different storage array, while we debug this fully.
LEG now mirrors Kubuntu Updates from kubuntu-ppa. This repository mostly contains KDE point releases, though it does also contain updates to other software packages such as Amarok and KOffice.
To use this repository add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/kubuntu-ppa/ maverick main
Here is the info for the next Ubuntu Release party. The date is 10.10.10 and the party will start officially for us at 10:10(UTC+2), lets synchronise watches.
