This cname is handled like any other mirror in
MirrorBrain, with the exception that it is not configured with a certain
country, but with a wildcard, which matches all countries. Thus it's
considered for requests from all countries. (For the files that it
serves, namely those few ISOs.)

After the first release day, this special mirror is simply switched off
in MirrorBrain, and from that point everything is redirected to the
mirrors as normal.

AFAIK 48 hours actually, so 2 days.

To explain this: the bandwidth is surplus bandwidth that is available to
Novell anyway (as a customer), and it donates this bandwidth to the
openSUSE project. It's a nice gesture albeit it's of arguable use. I
guess the motivation needs to be understood in a historic context; there
was a time before openSUSE had a good download redirector.

Yes and we really melted the mirrors at that time.

Probably coolo has the Akamai stats when he is back in the office on Monday
on how much they served out.

Please evaluate that with the fact in mind that all mirrors have seen lower throughput than before - with exception of, but that was an effect outside of mirrorbrain.

My guess is mirrorbrain is so sensitive and complete now that Akamai will be no win next time, as it already was no win this time regarding individual throughput.
