Today I just went to help a guy to set up a Discourse instance. Here is a problem I have to deal with.
It’s known GFW blocks many traffic which goes to outside world, like facebook and twitter. But it blocks rubygems too. I know it’s weird, which Chinese engineers agree, but it’s the truth.
We built mirrors to deal with it. Here is one supported by Taobao which sync in every 15 minutes. But if I want a docker installation, I have to connect to a VPN which is awkward for end users.
Can we do something for that problem?
