The Firebird project could arrange for the files to be mirrored in half a dozen different places, and would too, if the need was there. I'd rather that SourceForge sorted this out themselves and made the process transparent to end users. I don't care where the downloads come from, but I do like to see reasonably accurate download statistics. These figures are only maintained, afaik, by downloads via the SF web interface.

Of course, stats are only secondary - they are not a lot of use if users can't actually get at the files. However, they do help us all get a feel for how successful Firebird is and where users are looking to use it.
