As karmic end-user who downloaded the CD+all updates twice in the first 
day (I installed on two computers), I feel I have my part of 
responsibility ;)

I don't use my Belgian mirror only by irrational fear that it is not up 
to date. Just say me that the Belgian server has no more than few hour 
delay, and I'm going to use it.

A better communication to the end-user about the delay and quality of 
mirrors could maybe help people (like me) to use them. Is there any 
statistics about who is using what mirror ?

Have a good day
