Thanks for this data. We have gotten reports of similar behaviour for
Patrick and I did some testing around caching on web apps and I know
he's fixed a couple of issues there that seems to have helped quite a
bit on some of the apps.
a while but never enough data to see why it is broken. The main
is that we don't have any mirrors in the eastern pacific region. We
haven't had any luck on getting any either over the years :/. I am not
sure how to fix this but it helps that we can at least point out some
of the reasons it could be a problem.
Yes, the lack of mirrors is an issue there, not sure how we can deal
with that. There's a transit issue between some providers in Aus which
doesn't help. Works fine on Telstra and another ISP and then
completely fails on others which is not a great user experience.
Let me know if there's any specific testing I can help with while I'm here.
