Same here.

You said you have it already on your laptop. These files are old. An
update shouldn't trigger any bandwidth usage, assuming the last update
was within the last few months. At some point of course everybody needs
to get these files and you might not have a broad band connection right
then, I understand the pain.

The argument against that would be disk space, not so much bandwidth.
Currently we talk about 180MB, about half of the size of the repository.
We could setup something different for the plain recordings though.
Thanks for opening a ticket so that we don't forget.
