Hi Janina,

So did I, but it's not a problem I don't think: we'll simply assign the
propper amount of space ...

Can you give me an idea of how much it is? Like 5 gigs, 10 gigs?

Take care,

My expectation is that we'll simply point public downloads against the
mirrors, once we have them. This should alleviate the load on Bumpy.

Please note that I'm talking about mirroring all of the various community
contributed technology available at Speakup, not just the Fedora. I think
you missed that.

If Linux can't solve your computing problem, you need a different problem.
