Please tell me that you have tested the patch and are sure it's working 
without problems. ;-)

Otherwise I'm pretty sure something was not changed and it will lead to 
a broken download service.

In any way, I recommend to setup a test phase in the test area 
( Here we can do some try & 
error games until it's working, without any interference of the 
production area.

OK, back to the patch:

This shouldn't be necessary as the host for the download link should 
also come from a varialbe and not from hard-coded links.

It seems this wasn't changed until now. I'll do this, then the patch is 
not needed.

The distribution of the ISO files wasn't integrated into the download 
service; except that the files were hosted by a server with MirrorBrain.

Have we already discussed about these ISO files? Do we want to continue 
this? If not, IMHO no need to migrate a dead service.

This is the heart of the download logic. Up to now only MirrorBrain was 
used. In former times also Bouncer (from OSUOSL) but there were many 
changes to make the migration from Bouncer to MirrorBrain successful. 
So, I don't know yet if the changes in the patch are complete to offer 
another alternative or if there is something more to change.
