[Question] Possibilities of bandwidth contribution

Dear Arch-ers.

I'm currently seeding the arch linux iso trough .torrent, (among other linux distro's), and that get's me about 3-400 gb's of traffic a month.

The ''problem'' is that I still have around 500GB of extra bandwidth I'm doing absolutely nothing with.

Any suggestions as to what 500GB of bandwidth could be used for for the Arch community?

Re: [Question] Possibilities of bandwidth contribution

I think you mean 300-400 and not 3-400 GB/month :-)

You can host an unofficial repo. I think some people wouldn't mind if you mirrored their repo, because their hosting is slow.

Edit: One such repo is

[archlinuxgis]
# Maintainers needed - low bandwidth
SigLevel = PackageOptional
Server = http://archlinuxgis.no-ip.org/$arch

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Un … positories

An unofficial repo seems like an option but I'm wondering if that's the only other option. :-)
