Description Robert Coie (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-31 14:04:44 UTC
Build Identifier: 

To spread the load on ibiblio, and so that new users have a better initial
experience with the installation, I think it would be a good idea to document
the procedure for setting GENTOO_MIRRORS in the install guide(s), give a link to
the mirror list, and strongly suggest that people choose a mirror.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2003-01-31 23:46:22 UTC
