I know in Australia there are a lot of ISP's that mirror off each
other and that generally propagates out. The example is my isp
ftp.iinet.net.au mirrors off planetmirror yet its done on a 24 hour
basis I believe. The only issue I have is that if the release of
Fedora happens to be on a Thursday/Friday US time then we don't get it
till Monday, Tuesday of the following week. While thats not your
issue it's painting a picture of how my isp works.
Is there a way to talk to some of the mirrors in Australia? I know of
about 3-4 mirrors that aren't listed (not confirmed) maybe because
they are sub-mirrors.
I suppose to add to the list to make it at least of some value.
- Not fedora 7 (not sure why but a lot of
people struggled in switching)
ftp://ftp.iinet.net.au - Does some of Fedora
These are just a quick look. There are a few universities that offer
mirroring as well. Is there a way to get a look at a region's mirrors
to see if marketing can help locate other mirrors for infrastructure to
have a chat to?
