Hey everyone,

I noticed that your mirrors are quite slow (I'm looking at you funfreegameshq.com). I still have a Strato Server with unlimited traffic lying around, which is idling most of the timen so I'd like to help with some bandwith. :)

I also noticed that your distribution process is subpar, as it requires access to the server or manual intervention. My recommendation would be to setup an rsync server on the official server, with which the other servers can be synchronized automatically (every hour or so). As rsync detects change between files efficiently this would speed up the distribution and not cause more load. (Mirrors would be whitelisted by IP) This is also the recommended distribution process by the Debian distribution. If you would like me to I would look into adapting the debian mirror scripts. So we can use them for the distribution of the TDM files. This would provide additional benefits like pushing to mirrors and multistage sync.

What do you think?

Sounds good - I agree on the rsync side of things too. Been thinking of it for my few boxes that are helping out too.
If you'd like to quickly grab a tarball or something of the files, shout at me in irc (freenode / #thedarkmod). I don't have access to the mirror list but I'll take care of making sure that happens in the next day or so.

And then we'll look at rsync or something for the future.

Will get that slow mirror removed, had another two people mention it in irc last night.
