Hi Mr. E,

I suggest you install zsync package, and from the download page choose the
file that ends with .zsync, and then in terminal use the URI with that tool.
Obviously the first time you'll end up downloading the whole DVD, so it'll take
some time. But after that, when there are (likely to become) changes to the
images, the downloads from there onwards are much quicker, just as long as you
remember to use that tool.

I'll give you the exact command once the RCs are up there for grabs.

Thanks for showing the interest!

Best regards,
