We can recognize the contribution of fastly and amazon by augmenting the
information published at https://deb.debian.org, perhaps.

The hostname that users enter into their sources configuration should be CDN
provider-agnostic and that's what deb.debian.org provides.

underlying the deb.debian.org service.

Thanks, everyone, for working on this.
