    That's what I expected :) It was the only conclusion I came to
    considering your mail and that there is no main mirror on pandora.

    I have a machine with a local mirror but I can't say if I can give
    anybody access to it. My boss is out of town - I can ask him though.
    That machine would have a lot of disk space we could use for the

    Another question is how to organize the package on the cds. Do we want
    to maintain the pool structure there? I would say yes, since you could
