+Contact: Cluster Administration Team <>
+FreeBSD Cluster Administration Team members are responsible for managing the machines the Project relies on to synchronize its distributed work and communications.
+In this quarter, the team has worked on the following:
+* Regular support for user accounts.
+* Regular disk and parts support (and replacement) for all physical hosts and mirrors.
+* Enable mirroring of link:[] and link:[] in the FreeBSD project-managed mirrors.
+* Cluster refresh, upgrading all hosts and jails to the most recent versions of 15-CURRENT, 14-STABLE, 13-STABLE, and 12-STABLE.
+* Begin sunsetting 12-STABLE infrastructure as the branch approaches its end of life.
+In addition to these projects, with link:[Modirum] generously link:[sponsoring Philip's time] for most of October, we were able to bring pkgbase into "preview" production in time for 14.0-RELEASE in November.
+We also installed a new European mirror site in Sjöbo, Sweden, sponsored by Teleservice Skåne AB.
+Traffic in Europe is now directed roughly equally between our existing mirror in Frankfurt (sponsored by Equinix) and the new mirror in Sweden.
+After well over ten years in service, we plan to decommission our mirror site in the UK during first quarter of 2024.
+We would like to thank link:[Bytemark Hosting] for supporting this mirror for all this time.
+Next quarter, supported by the FreeBSD Foundation, we plan to bring up a new primary cluster site in Chicago.
+==== FreeBSD Official Mirrors Overview
+Current locations are Australia, Brazil, Germany, Japan (two full mirror sites), Malaysia, South Africa, Taiwan, United Kingdom (full mirror site), United States of America -- California, New Jersey (primary site), and Washington.
