There's a server rotation in effect?  Shit, spinning servers - next they'll
be spewing pea soup! :)

TBH the only impact if you upload something to beo and don't tell anyone is
that the mirrors won't catch up - I manually update deouk from beo (via my
adsl) and planetmirror updates via rsync daily from deouk.  It will get
better.  Promise :)

I personally didn't see the point - I was stupid enough to upload opera 7b1

I think the best thing to do is from now and forever when there's a major
browser release (or prerelease), put a note on the beo front page saying
"hey, great new browser, download it from the vendor, and it'll be on beo in
a few days/weeks/months" to prevent serious bandwidth abuse.

That's my initial thoughts anyway.
