We need to move ~130GB to each of ~230 mirrors, in about 4
days.

We already have in place a limited amount of "tiering".  The Tier 0/1
mirrors get the bits first, then downstream mirrors pull from them.
We have nearly all our "Tier 1" mirrors on I2 (all but the
us.kernel.org).  Right now it's not mandatory, but no "new" mirrors
(those signed up in the last 18 months or so) have been granted ACL
permissions to download from the masters.

One of my hopes for the F12 cycle is that we will have increased use
of tiering and push mirroring.

What about dropping hierarchical mirroring altogether? Why hasn't someone developed a distributed (i.e. bittorrent-like) system for mass mirroring? :-)
