Fastmirrors.org problem downloading packages

I am getting failures downloading packages from fastmirrors.org. It appears that the domain expired and has been hijacked. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Hash of the downloaded file does not match (file: 88dcddf2a92b9dc9243e929340fdc6f3431b779e22438093d7a31a400f1c3909, requested: 42aa7c213dedbd95d33ca84d92f4187880f7e96062c6a3fb05bfb16f77ba2a91) - deleting download.

Fix what?

If the old owners no longer run it...

:skull_and_crossbones:

Is this OpenWrt related?

If so, how?

Are you seeking an rddtool download alternative?

I am trying to build OpenWrt 22.03.3 from checkout. It basically stops doing make download when it tries to download rrdtool from fastmirrors.org. It has a timeout of 86400 seconds with a retry count of 5 which means it will just sit there for 120 hours before giving up!
Is there a way to patch it to download from an alternative site? There are several packages dependent on it.

So the workaround is to remove the fastmirrors.org line from feeds/packages/utils/rrdtool1/Makefile which forces it to use the other ones. Is there a better way to override the use of the non-existent mirror?

That commit is October 2022. Why was it not picked up by a v22.03.3 build from January 2023 tag?

Each PR targets a specific branch, so in general it requires to open a separate PR, unless some developer decides to cherry-pick the commit and apply it to another branch.

22.03 release branch deviated from master already in February 2022.
Everything needs to be specifically backported / cherry picked from master to the 22.03 release branch.

I can cherry pick that commit after the Easter holidays.

I cherry-picked the URL change commit to 21.02 and 22.03
