Happy to announce the addition of another mirror to the official network, now counting 12 mirrors strong world-wide.
The mirror is kindly provided by Jman from KellysHeroes.
Looking for more interested hosters, details at; http://six.dev-heaven.net/wagn/Six_Updater+Mirror_Setup
When will we see some linux tools to abuse the SU mirrors? I used to use the Yoma script from helling3r but it seems that all mirrors are disappearing.
Though, I would like to suggest to keep the linux tools somewhat native (so no ruby on rails, imo) to keep the dependencies a low as possible.
Also Dr Pulp's update script is linked there.
Alternatively you can sync a preset to your server from within the new updater, either by using FTP or rSync; http://six.dev-heaven.net/wagn/Updat...y_FTP_or_rSync
I am planning to bring much of the new functionality in v2.0 and later versions to linux, but it is currently not my main priority.

Awesome, missed that one. I guess uploading with rSync is the easiest thing to do though. Does it support rSync over SSH (without password login but with a SSH key)?
It supports openssh keys through openssh and additionally for windows putty keys through plink.
The openssh implementation currently is most stable and seems to perform better.
Before using it you'll have to accept the server SSH host key; http://six.dev-heaven.net/wagn/Six_U..._Setup+openSSH
You can specify the privatekey to be used by creating a config.yml in the following folder:
On windows: C:\users\username\appdata\roaming\six-rsync
On linux: ~/six-rsync
With the following content:(or .ppk in case of putty key)Code:--- :key: C:/path/to/id_rsa
You can find the Upload preset functionality on the RepoBuilder tab, available after enabling Advanced mode (click the button labeled Advanced).
Use the following url format at the "Remote Folder" field: username@hostname:/path/to/arma
and hit Push Preset.

Nice, I'll give this a try with the next ACE update!
One more question, I see that Six Updater is open source, I don't know if you can compile ruby on rails or not, but do you also accept patches from other people?

Currently the license does not allow derivative works - alter, transform or build upon the work, without express permission.
But I will gladly give contributors permissions for patches.
Forking and making a pull request on github.com would be the preferred method: https://github.com/sickboy/six-updater-gui
In case of long term contribution, we can work out access to the official repo etc.
The GUI repo contains all the projects for SU 2.x on windows, but im planning to refactor the code to be OS agnostic (or at least Windows/linux).

Currently not receiving much feedback / bug reports re the latest Six Updater 2.4 Release Candidate...
Will probably be released as stable soon, while work will commence on the 2.5 milestone shortly after.
Awesome! Will see if I can contribute something useful in the near future.
