So, maybe an operational question.

What are people seeing as far as network traffic loads due to WMF patching
activity, e.g. auto-update and manual downloads?  Microsoft has used
several CDNs in addition to its own servers to distribute the load
in the past.
Most organizations use from one to quite a few of their own distribution points. It would be interesting to know what the stats are at broadband providers... Although proxying may make the results a bit "nicer" in some places.
