mirror.aarnet.edu.au makes debian cd images (among others) available
via rsync, but we also have to deny access to non australian networks

what's cdimage.d.o ?

and btw is there a standard for how much you have to carry ? we can
only carry the 2.1R2 source, i386 and sparc images.  which we've gotten
