    I vote for a community option on the bandwidth, deb torrent and also physical DVD's via mail which the community could mail out. I like the idea of using a contribution share ratio. That way members could get credit for activities like mailing a DVD, or programing, or whatever, same as if they contributed money. Maybe we could charge $5 a bucks a DVD, for the cause, too. But I guess if you're rolling in cash it really doesn't matter, not saying you are-I don't know. Would be cool from a community point of view to see what the expenses are and where the money's coming from and how the expenses relate to the community size in terms of a ratio, 1x. I have projects I love but I don't stay involved and it's largely because I don't really know where anything is. One of the most important things a leader does is keep the team on page. If you have a lot of people that aren't sure what's going on, that's not good. You want to leave the door open. I like the idea of a share ratio because it's a starting point for doing something as opposed to nothing, which I could contribute $10 bucks or $10,000, for example, and I might as well have done nothing because there's no context. But....that's my $0.02......good grief.

    Thanks!

    A quick q before I open a ticket with Internode support. This disc you mention, are there any existing details I can look over to supply Internode? Is it an ubuntu-b(i)ased live disc with PTS installed?
    I'll send you a PM about the details, the distribution isn't publicly announced yet.

    Mate, honestly, if you (I in this case) sent them an email detailing what you're doing, who you are (if they don't already) and what you have, I'm pretty sure they'd stick it up on thier mirror. 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.
