Alternate Mozilla 0.9.9 Download Locations

Interest in 0.9.9 has been so great that we overwhelmed the 100 Mbit full duplex link from ftp.mozilla.org with heavy traffic." Because of this, mozilla.org and Netscape have set up a new set of servers (http, ftp) to handle the load. Also, you can check the mirrors list for servers closer to you.

Is content pushed to them, or do they pull from the official site?

Would it be possible to make sure that 1.0 is distributed to all mirros, before the release annoncement is sent to the masses?

How about advertising more heavily for the mirror sites?
