    I'll send you a PM about the details, the distribution isn't publicly announced yet.

The mirror is available worldwide. Internode customer's just get free data transfer. At the very least it'd end up on the games.on.net domain. I'll track down a contact if I can for this kind of thing for the future.
    Sure, if you know of the contact details that would be very much appreciated. If you don't contact, I can end up doing so.

    Hi Michael. I'm from Australia and, I use (in my opinion) one of the more reputable and forward thinking ISPs in Oz, Internode. They already mirror most linux distro's at mirror.internode.on.net/pub, and are the first here to have a 100% Sourceforge mirror to boot. If you like, I can possibly create a list of the needed packages based sourced from Internode as an Aussie/NZ mirror. I already did this manually when I was creating a full cache for a previous version of PTS (1.2 I believe) as I preferred the 1.8MB/sec over 100kb . The hardest part is making sure if you update package versions in PTS, that they exist already at Internode. I'm sure a little discussion will fill me on on the process.
    What all is needed for Internode to create a mirror? Do they provide mirrors at all for people outside of NZ/Australia (besides their SourceForge mirror)?

    Mirroring more packages would be nice, but the key part is going to be hosting the ISO for a coming-soon Phoronix Test Suite LiveCD benchmarking distribution.

    started a topic For Those Looking To Help Out With PTS

    For Those Looking To Help Out With PTS

    For those looking to help out with the Phoronix Test Suite, but may lack development experience, in this thread I'll begin listing different activities that are in need of work...

    - With Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 and later, due to some forthcoming features, we will be in a real need for mirrors... To host a Linux ISO and some other things. I really would appreciate any help in finding any (free) mirrors for the project, on university servers, etc.

    - More documentation / how-to guides on the Phoronix Test Suite.

    - The Phoronix Test Suite Wikipedia page could use some updating @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoronix_Test_Suite

    - Testing out PTS on distributions outside of the SuSE/RH/Ubuntu/Debian realm.

    - Provide input on the user interface

    - Testing, testing, testing

    More items will be listed shortly...
