a high bandwidth site closer to this side of the pacific would be most
helpful.. there are half a dozen australian archives who make mirrors
of the debian cd images available.. is there any possibility for a physical
CD distribution scheme possible ? i realise it sounds weird, but to
update all the images from the US/UK costs around AU$400 in network download
charges (we pay $140 per gigabyte of traffic) - if some CDs were pressed
containing the .iso files (not a bootable iso cd!), it would drop the cost
down considerably for us (sneakernet is viable again!)
