Not much of a difference this time, still good for download in 4~5
days. This time it looks more like adjusting based on known time
needed to push to external servers.

Although I'm quite curious, how is the push done? Given the
requirements of 25Mbits for donated servers, it would take less than
an hour to push through even 10GB worth of DVD + CDs. It seems quite
odd that it takes 2~3 days just to push to internal mirrors.
