I researched that before uploading to begin with. They used to not even
allow files over a certain size. However they now appear to condone and
even have specific methods for uploading such large files. Note, the
iso's are not on all mirrors only some of them, hence the estimate of
~20 when they have significantly more. We are by no means the only
"distro" hosted on their service either.

If I knew who to email I'd be happy to.
