The Qubes Rocks! mirror is a http accessible clone of the main qubes repository located at https://yum.qubes-os.org. It consists of Main installer isos with the current version being https://mirror.qubes.rocks/iso/Qubes-R4.0-x86_64.iso. It also includes the main qubes repository, allowing faster access to users when the main upstream repository is congested.
