why not read the next line of my mail also, where I am offering to join up 
this group of people working for free?

yes, bw is pricey in some locales; why couple of days, i would be happy to 
drop out of the mirror system altogether. it is not just a matter of skew. 
public mirrors are given a round robin master mirror system - why announce 
and ask public mirror maintainers to prepare and seed the release before 
the round robin masters are all seeded and up? maybe, 'miserable failure' 
is too harsh a term, i apologize, but it appears there is more than an 
isolated random failure.
