Subject Re: Live testing of SF download mirrors

Hi Mark,

thank you for bringing up some details about's infrastructure. It 
is indeed very interesting. On the other hand I'm still a friend of 
including the reliable bandwidth provided by the OOo mirrors as they 
still provide additional entry points for downloaders worldwide. 
MirrorBrain's main advantage over Bouncer from the OpenSource Lab at the 
University of Oregon (OSUOSL) [which is still a great mirror] was the 
GeoIP capability of MirrorBrain where people from countries having just 
a low bandwith were able to reduce the overall bandwith because IP 
packet requests were redirected to a local mirror. In some countries 
people still use a modem to download OOo and this may need some days to 
download just one release...

Kind regards, Joost
