For me surely torrent1.fedoraproject.org is the bottleneck, because it only 
seeds at around 0.2 KB/s and is the only seed at all. Something is strange, 
because given the time the torrent is already online, there should be several 
other seeds, but nearly all peers have the same percentage of the files, so 
they redistribute whatever they got, but nobody gets the missing chunks 
reasonable fast to redistribute them.
