After my announcement that the mech001 primary mirror is going offline, you guys have created a peak surge of download the past week. I've been contacted by TU-Security and asked if this is normal. Well, i explained the situation to them and i and hope they will understand the surge in bandwidth last week was due to excessive rsync traffic of this software archive.
So please people, don't pull redundant stuff over our network, just for the sake of getting the full mirror before it goes offline. I will make sure that there will be a new server to continue this service, but please be patient with me sorting out my work troubles, and don't create more problems by killing my bandwidth quota for this machine.
