Actually, the November bandwidth used was *down* (25G) from the October
bandwidth used (33G). Some of this is due to the fact that someone else
has taken on creating F8's x86_64 deltarpms, so I no longer have those
downloads coming through. I think the rest might be due to people being
scared off from my announcement on -devel (which wasn't my intention at
I wouldn't worry about the possibility of the server going down. At some
point (hopefully), the Fedora 8 official repositories will be
presto-enabled and you will then be able to get your deltarpms directly
from them. The Fedora 7 official repositories will never be
presto-enabled (at least as far as I understand it).
