EasyList mirrors - Different expires periods

Post by mikhaelkh » Sun Apr 08, 2018 7:51 pm

EasyList has different mirrors:
- https://easylist.to/easylist/easylist.txt (4 days)
- https://secure.fanboy.co.nz/easylist.txt (4 days)
- https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/easylist.txt (1 days)

uBO will check them in this order. 1st and 2nd expires after 4 days, 3rd — after 1 day. Is there a reason why expires periods differ? I want to change order and use 3rd mirror and update it every day, what do I have to do in uBO?
Windows x64 v1607, Chrome
uMatrix(hpHosts'ATS,MalwareDomains,StevenBlack), TM(RuAdList JSFixes),

To NOT overwhelm the servers with rapidfire requests with shorter periods.

I can only answer to mine, but its only a mirror. I've used 4 days because;
  • is just a mirror, not official.
  • 4x the bandwidth savings
  • Avoid excessive traffic and ssl abuse.
