I've been uploading the image since noon today, another 8 hours or more before it's finished. I've also got a torrent seeded on LinuxTracker, but that was just as slow (though that's mostly because I only had one person attached, so bittorrent was basically just creating an http download stream). (I'm uploading it to a server temporarily to allow the OLPC guys to download it.)
Big areas identified for trimming the Gentoo image: almost 1GB of documentation in the image... that can likely be online as easily as anything. 1.3GB in the portage tree and that *should* be something you can rsync down at any time. Together that would get the image size down to about 2GB internally, which might even fit onto a CD when compressed and defragmented.
Also got work done on paying customer's projects. Have to deal with a couple of deployment issues on one of the VoIP projects along with the regular crop of todo items on the billing/provisioning systems. For now, though, I need to sleep. Off to the caffe tomorrow so that we don't have any distractions from the paying work.
