Appreciation is all well and good, but we're still not listed on 
https://www.parabola.nu/mirrorlist/all/ nor on 
https://wiki.parabola.nu/Get_Parabola ...

Btw, the "standard" download links on 
https://wiki.parabola.nu/Get_Parabola seems to simply do round-robin 
between the available mirrors... While it offloads the main download 
server, it doesn't make full use of regional mirrors.

Among the motivations for running ftp.acc.umu.se are the aim to 
provide excellent service to our region, so we strongly recommend 
using a geoip aware download redirector. Mirrorbits 
https://github.com/etix/mirrorbits comes highly recommended by many 
projects that we mirror.
