My understanding of what happened with ISO's -
They were kind by seeding a torrent with ~ 95% of the isos - the
intention being that when official release was made, those who got in on
the early torrent would only have ~ 5% to fetch.
That kindness was abused when someone found a mirror that opened early
(mirrors opening early has happened to Fedora and other distros as well,
it's a mirror admin problem) and seeded the full iso on that torrent
resulting in people getting the full iso before it was released.
