We used to use sourceforge, but its actually quite a pain to upload
stuff, and it was horribly unreliable (though they may have fixed this).
When we released the initial Xen 1.0 demo CD and got slashdotted we
brought sourceforge to its knees and got hate mail...

We ended up buying a bunch of servers and some serious bandwidth, so we
should be able to handle most load spikes, but its good to have the
email stuff as a backup --- each demo CD download is 700MB, so you don't
need too many simultaneous downloaders to burn some serious bandwidth!
