I'm not sure why you'd want to do that.  It's very much in
the interests of Australian ISPs to mirror sites like
SourceForge, and it's pretty cheap to do so (a few TB
being nothing with modern disks - have a look at the
capacity of the Apple RAID box).

So I think you'll find there will always be at least one
mirror of SourceForge in Australia.
