there is also a NetBSD SUP/FTP mirror running on:

files of interest may currently be found in the NetBSD-current subdirectory.
beginning with 1.0, releases will also be available.

this mirror is updated daily at about midday, local time (MET), using
SUP. An example supfile can be found in /pub/misc/sup. Please note that
the sup server takes precedence over the ftp server and that unless there

Sup connections are limited to 8 at a given time.
Ftp connections will be limited if they start to interfere with SUP.

this source tree includes the european security release, so as long as
nobody tries importing to USA and then exporting again, there should
be no problems. The europeaon version is also supposedly faster than the
