Hi all,
I have already filed the wiki https://wiki.ubuntu.com/metalink as well as https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubu...ed-downloading (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu-cdimage/+spec/segmented-downloading) although no developer nor in any way associated with the people who have made the .metalink format but it is gaining ground. OpenSuse along with 12 other distros are already using it to distribute the distros.

Plenty of people seem to be using it to download Ubuntu ISOs, it just isn't official.

I think if the right people understood it, they wouldn't hesitate.
