On a reread of this, I see I missed that you are not interested in making
your own distro.
What exactly are your proposing? Something like sourceforge? Or a mirrors
in Nova Scotia? The problem with physical locations is that a user on
high speed has to travel through the network to Montreal and sometimes
the States before coming back to a site hosted on Eastlink, and vice versa.
Really, something hosted in Montreal is probably as location neutral and
close to the east coast as you are going to get.
