Serve the gr binary through BinaryBuilder / Github / julialang-s3 #187
I am visiting Beijing right now, and I note (as did many others here) that the GR binary installs is one of the slowest steps when setting up a Julia install. In general, I found it slow in the US too, but it is extremely slow in Beijing.
Does it make sense to serve the binaries through BinaryBuilder, the julialang-s3 hosting or even just uploading them to GitHub so that they get served through a CDN?
