i really tried hard to get all images together to offer cpu, bandwith
and storage to the community - But i have not the time
to search for images possibly someone got out of cdimage.debian.org
in a lucky moment of getting a connect.

"debcdmirror" is definitly the right choice, but contacting the
mirror maintainers 24hours prior to usage, without ability to test
it and with non-real-world proof algorithms (Maxed out connections
drop of images) is also not really a good issue. This also 
forces people to take spare time in this exact moment which is
a force on people which stops them from contributing back to the
debian project.

As mirrors dont seem to have priority i send you the notice that
i stopped mirroring, removed the small and incomplete number of
cd-images from the public area and deleted the rsync target.

Please remove me from the list of cd-image mirrors as the only thing i dont
have in respect to offering resources back to the community is spare time.

So long 

BTW: Do to missing real release cd images i see a lot people getting test-cyle-2
and slink iso images which will be very confusing for the supporters on all support
