Hi -

ISC has established mirrors.isc.org to help distribute open source
software over both IPv4 [] and IPv6 [2001:4f8:0:2::1e]
networks.  If any of you were at BSDcon last week, you may have seen me 
give a  tour of the site where mirrors.isc.org/freebsd.isc.org is 
located (it's a quad-Xeon box running FreeBSD 5.x RELEASE code).

So I am are now populating the server with various software distributions 
(So far KDE, pgsql, OpenSSL, mod_ssl, Apache Software Foundation, 
Python, Postfix) Most of them already have mirrors.isc.org listed as a 
primary mirror site listed.

So what would be the best way to request (if possible) that 
http://mirrors.isc.org/pub/<software> be added at the top (or next to 
the top) of the various sections in bsd.sites.mk?  The site has multiple 
OC-3's and updates from eact site's master repository at 12 hour 
intervals.  We also offer an option to those that want to use IPv6 as 
much as possible.

Also, we want to beat the traffic numbers from kernel.org (who we also
host one cabinet over) ;-)

Any questions can be sent to me - Thanks!

Best Wishes - Peter Losher
