Trying to sync all that content around the mirrors in any sort of reasonable time frame is not going to happen. Hanging the entire tree off of a single http point is not going to happen either, that point would quickly drown under the connections. We can't just rely on rawhide as tomorrow the rawhide content will be different and you wouldn't be able to complete your jigdo. If we're to have any sort of fast to the public snapshoting, we have to use a delivery mechanism that is capable of spreading the bandwidth load throughout the users without bringing down the host. Right now, that only leaves us with bittorrent as an option. Now, if there were some way to combine bittorrent and jigdo and if jigdo had better failover methods when mirrors are hit without the content we could potentially do something better. Jigdo + rawhide + whatever you already have for the majority of the content, bittorrent to suck down the very last little bit or something along those lines. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
