If you could please do an initial sync against ine of the other rsync 
mirrors that carry dvd images - that would save our servers a lot of 
bandwidth - and they are more likely better connected to you than we are.

Having said that, we do need to formalise our approach to dvd downloads 
and a request has been made that all mirrors that offer dvd by rsync 
should have a separate rsync target for them (or including them) , which I 
am inclined to agree with and need to formalise shortly.  Any comments 
welcome ...
