netbsd.rmit.edu.au:/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/src has it as well, for
those in Australia.

I had to plug another drive into melanoma to fit -current and the 1.0
release, but now I have heaps of space. Check this out:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/wd0a 9951 6820 2633 72% /
/dev/wd0e 31847 790 29464 3% /var
/dev/wd0g 48499 41677 4397 90% /usr
/dev/wd1a 326575 151376 158870 49% /home
/dev/wd0f 212419 119354 82444 59% /home/ftp/.../NetBSD-current
So, if anyone else wants to setup a 1.0 and -current mirror, you'd need
about 300MB + room for the OS. You'd probably also need another 150MB
if you're mirroring the arch -current binaries (which I'm not at this
time since 1.0 has been released and outdated it)
And, if you have XFree86, add another 100MB or so. (I'll compile up
a version on the weekend and put it up for FTP)
(I've also just plugged another 4MB into the machine (upto 8MB) and
the difference in performance is very obvious :)
