FTP.RIKEN.JP is now ready for CentOS 5.3 (except for iso-DVDs which
are now under rsyncing). So official CentOS mirrors can try to rsync to


This server (ftp.riken.jp) has been connected at 10 Gbps to WAN
which many academic sites (universities and research institutes) in Japan
are connected.

This is the first experimental connection at 10 Gbps of this server.
I can not expect what will be happen. So please try it at your own risk.

I have checked all the md5sums for iso CD images of i386 and X86_64
and they are OK.
