Yeah, it's annoying.  We try to work around it by running our own mirror,
with some bandwidth available to the public, and our hosting customers
getting access to it at gigabit speed, unmetered.  It makes for real nice
dist-upgrades, but too often it's been broken by an upstream...

 People everywhere confuse what they read in newspapers with news.
