    I did a test download, it automatically used Tenet's mirror.

    As an example I downloaded: http://tenet.dl.sourceforge.net/proj....20/7za920.zip

    Hi All,

    *Cringe* Firstly, thats the most aweful photograph of me ever taken, and is years old :P At some point I will post a better one to repair my tarnished image *laugh*

    With regards to the entire website being mirrored, sourceforge mirrors (All of them) host only the actual project files, the base website is centrally located and all project files are then redirected to the closest mirror via geographic ip location matching.

    We have mirrored the entire project file base (as stated in the article, 14 terabytes), and have enabled push synchronization so its getting updated on a constant basis by Sourceforge itself.

    As an additional note, we have just started synching the ubuntu cdimage set as well, which includes the DVD images, alpha / beta releases, daily builds etc. This was synched this afternoon.

    Fabulous, Andrew. Mirror sites are all too few here, so we really do appreciate this! At least I do! So tired of downloads taking forever because it's situated on a USA server and South Africans are watching rugby or cricket on the internet.
