Our current static websites are maintained and mirrored via the sysadmin team. We currently have mirrors serving up content from the US, Germany, Iceland, and Austria. Adding or defaulting to a CDN would allow for global geocaching, improved performance of the sites, and availability when Tor's infrastructure is unavailable due to maintenance or failures.

Asked weasel about the current state of plans. I think our website holds up completely fine with the exception of release day for TB. For that, having a mirroring setup that doesn't require tpo-managed infrastructure would be a good idea, tho I'm not sure how feasible that is. I think that means that a CDN is only helpful if they'd mirror our downloads.

This has less to do with the website and more with the sysadmins who take the html and make magic happen so it appears on the web.
