Oh, well then no, i'm not sure. I tried for the last time in the first 
days of may. I just assmued that since the file dates didn't change, the 
files weren't changed till then. I'll check that today.

Well, and what about :
- seeding only 3.0r2 DVD, or putting the iso on mirrors
- removing old 3.0 and 3.0r1 images from mirrors

That way, everything interesting will remain available (through BT or 
mirrors). Also would be possible to stop BT download at all (frankly 
it's quite useless, BT works well only when you have a lot of people 
downloading/sharing a file, which is not the case for WBEL), and put the 
DVD iso on the mirrors, using the room left by 3.0 and 3.0r1 ISO CD images.
