ISC has been asked to operate a public cvsup/ftp FreeBSD mirror at a big
pan-European ISP. For reasons outside my control, the space I have for

perhaps platform specific?
How do other mirrors pare down their offerings from 'all'? I am hoping

BTW - can 5.4 ISO's in general be moved to freebsd-archive (as well as
Thanks for your advice in advance.
