Support from OSU (our source for masterdistfiles) said that there was some
problems in the past week with their DNS view. This may or may not be
related but they say that since you are getting the 140. address (which is
routed for people on I2) then there should not be any speed issues. Here,
they recommend to ask your upstream provider if they are having routing
issues to masterdistfiles or any other limitations. Additionally,
recommended to post the output of "mtr masterdistfiles.gentoo.org" as that
might provide some better clues.
You were seeing timeouts and since have told me that they went away. OSU
says this is from that mix up earlier. Nearly 80% of the traffic was routed
incorrectly. So they say.
I hope this problem resolves itself here.
