- Subject: Parallel downloading of Cygwin packages
I use the latest installer, but it only uses one mirror to download
packages from at the same time. I have the impression that the mirror I
selected only gives about 30KB/s, which makes installing Cygwin slow.
What I would like the installer to do is to download from all mirrors in
parallel different packages and in case one mirror doesn't respond that
it just drops that one and uses another one. The mirrors together should
be able to saturate my connection.
