1 Hi guys,
2 since the change of the eclass kernel-2 to make it use the subversion
3 kernel patches that we no longer keep the kernel sources on our mirrors
4 and they are downloaded from the mirrors. What happends is
5 that alot of people, including me, have traffic limits imposed by the
6 IPS's. In my case, i have 4GB international traffic limit. In the most
7 cases, the PT mirror isn't "selected" as the mirror to
8 download the kernel when we try to download a new kernel version so i
9 end up making international traffic, thing that didn't happend when we
10 had the sources on the mirrors. Besides that, in the case the of PT
11 mirror, it is very slow compared to some good distfiles
12 mirrors we have here.
13 So what i want to know is what you guys think if we get the kernel
14 sources back in the mirrors.
