AFAIK, jigdo uses wget for retreiving the files (good) and
uses some magic then to make a cd/dvd from them.

what is spectacular is that it uses several ftp servers at once

it simply call each time

"Connexion vers||:80...connecté.
requête HTTP transmise, en attente de la réponse...302 Found"

as the data can be in cache in the download server this
should not be a problem

it makes downloading very fast. this was overloading my usb2
drive, but I beg the syn problem is not correctly fixed (an
graphic yast interface to do this would be very usefull- the
xml stuf is horrible)

"jigdo" (the GUI) is broken (and say so :-), jigdo-lite
works but I don't see any bandwith control (wget...)
