Yacoubean and Robert Accettura wrote in to tell us that the Internet Software Consortium, Oregon State University, Georgia Tech and Indiana University have become distribution points for Mozilla software by setting up high-bandwidth mirror sites. Commenting on the announcement, ISC Chairman Paul Vixie said, "We are excited to be able to help the Mozilla Foundation with its efforts to promote open source applications by providing a distribution point for Mozilla software via IPv4 and IPv6. ISC has always been a strong advocate for open source software and this is one more way we can facilitate the distribution of open source software to the Internet community."

President of the Mozilla Foundation Mitchell Baker commented, "Free, reliable, high-speed download options for our technologies and products are critical to achieving broad adoption for our software." mozilla.org staff member Myk Melez, who has contributed to Bugzilla and wrote the Doctor site editing tool, added, "ISC's and the Universities' contribution of reliable, high-bandwidth mirror sites to our network helped us serve hundreds of thousands of downloads of Mozilla 1.5, Mozilla Firebird, and Mozilla Thunderbird during the post-release rush last month." More information is available in ISC's and the Mozilla Foundation's joint press release.
