So H3 is the last set before the big recompile.

A delay because of a wedding? Even I would say that you have your
priorites right, congratulations and have a good time.

I suspect that the build will be faster than the ftpmaster can cope with.
My guess is that the average upload per day will be about 50 MB. This is
based on my experience of what happens to the Debian ftp network when
there is a big pulse. Let alone problems people like me have who maintain
a partial mirror with a 56k modem (except in emergencies). So we may need
a temporary staging area.
