It seems that changed their layout, resulting in
the following error message: unparseable HTML index in

I suggest a workaround:

Use rsync:// for scanning, which should give better
results and should also be more efficient in general.

msg492 (view) Author: poeml Date: 2014-01-31.00:04:07

There's CSS in front of the HTML which contains
<style type="text/css"> table { border: none; ...

The "table" confuses the scanner, because that's what it looks for.

Or rather, it's a directory listing sent by nginx, and locally styled.

I'm a bit reluctant to adjust the existing parser for nginx directory listings
to this listing. I'm not sure if it's worth the effort, if it's only about this
mirror, for which the scanning can be done via rsync in a much more reliable way.

Sigh, rsync times out, when attempting a scan... there's also FTP, however, the
tdf directory is empty through that channel:

Too bad.

Your call ;-)
I think you have a valid point with fixing for only one mirror doesn't make
sense, yep, I agree.
