SubjectRe: ftp.kernel.org overloaded :-(
the mirror at:

ftp://limestone.uoregon.edu/pub/linux/kernel/

seems to have picked up everything up to pre-patch-2.1.120-1 as of 6pm
august 28... It runs on a 12 hour cycle, and the way I have it set up at
the moment it seems to be keeping up with the rapid changes relativly
well...

HPA discussed this at some point. I haven't heard anything back on the
issue since... part of the problem being that a full mirror is currently
running around 4GB and seems to be growing by 10 or 20MB every other day
at this point.
