I am telling you again: the sup mirrors still
do NOT work right.
I must agree with that. I tried to run a sup mirror in Germany, but have
never been able to make world or build a kernel with the sources from that
mirror. There has always been corruption of the source tree.
Due to the highly loaded intercontinental lines, the sup updates from
Freefall can take several hours, and in rare cases, (in particular if
freefall doesn't let me in due to its ten user limit) they aren't finished
until next night. It appears that the situation has improved somewhat with
the new Internet connection of Freefall, though, which doesn't route
through MCI/BBNPlanet any more.
I would really like to provide some service for up-to-date FreeBSD sources
in Europe, but sup simply doesn't work right under these conditions. I
wouldn't mind the updates taking several hours, but I do mind getting
garbled sources. They cost me a lot of time already.
