Stephen Montgomery generates the CTM deltas, & sends them through
the mailman lists on freebsd.org (which arent listed but are there
as far as I recall) , & as he doesn't have enough space, he also
rsyncs bases & deltas to the ftp repository server I host

Not that many use CTM, perhaps mostly because many have unrestricted
flat rate free bandwidth 24/7, so they can fetch another easier way, &
partly because even where CTM really scores, for those with
intermittent access or expensive data transfer (eg some mobile
tarrifs perhaps), some of those people arent aware of CTM, as we
havent kept up the www.freebsd.org etc docs.
