Internode has added a local mirror of SourceForge, the repository for much of the open
source goodness the world has to offer. This is good news for pretty
much anyone downloading open source software locally, as it’s bound
to make things faster. It’s doubly good news for Internode’s own
customers, as downloads from the mirror site are unmetered — handy
if you’re constantly downloading new widgets and patches.
While most major ISPs offer various
unmetered options (gaming and entertainment are the most common)
software-centric choices like this are a bit rarer, especially on the
open source side. If there’s any other Aussie peering or mirroring
arrangements you find especially handy, let us know in the comments.
