Good question.

For information:

The captcha on that site is shown by CloudFlare, that serves as a
proxy for them,
https://www.cloudflare.com/5xx-error-landing

Maybe there was a reason for it.

http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html
"How to become a mirror" - does not say anything about captchas,
though it says "Your mirror must not be shown "inside" another site
using, for instance, frames."
