Thanks for the facts.
As many others have said in this thread, you get cheap or reliable.
You do not get both.
Which perfectly fits to my real life experience. BTW, could we now
come back to the development related issues in this thread. I do
not really mind whether it is cheap or not what we expect people
to do who want to mirror Debian: We add them a burden (even adding
cheap stuff is some work and we should make sure that it is worth
the effort) and the initial question is: How can we meaningful
provide large chunks of data?
And once more: Any explanation why 38902 is tagged wont-fix?
