Re: Download speeds on archive.mariadb.org


Hi Sergei!

I am not sure where the mirror is. I needed a specific release of MariaDB
(10.1.16) and the downloads page redirected me to this server. I'm just
imagining what other, less informed users will experience themselves.

Agreed that the limit is too slow to make it useful. I've resorted to using
new downloads from the .com site, but I suppose .org should have a working
archive as well.

@Peter, I meant kilobytes (kB). Sorry as I always get confused by which
symbol I should use.
