1) Where can I find packlists?
2) Why is the download so slow?
You’re probably connecting to a bot far away from you. Each of the CR-XX|NEW bots are located in different parts of the world. For example, CR-EU|NEW is located in Europe, and CR-CA|NEW is located in Canada.
Find a bot closest to where you are downloading from and use that bot. For example, if you live in France, use CR-EU|NEW.
