Alan's quite right.  I am hosting the MinGW RPMs temporarily on my own
site (something like 700-800 MBs worth):


This is of course no substitute for proper, reliable Fedora hosting
and mirroring, which we'll get eventually once the packages are

But I spend under $30 / month on this server, and there is no
noticable load from the 565 people[1] synching their development
machines to it.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
