Subject: SUGGESTION: mention GNU Wget in the `how to mirror' document

Hi!

I was just reading http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html, and
I just wanted to let you know that GNU Wget (available from your
nearest GNU mirror) is a great alternative to `mirror.pl'... it's fast
and flexible, and easy to install.

Wget supports both FTP and HTTP mirroring, so you can still recommend
that people use the ftp mirroring capabilities if they want to mirror
www.apache.org.

For Wget, the following command will thoroughly do the trick:

wget --mirror -o apache.log -P/home/httpd/htdocs-apache \
   ftp://ftp.apache.org/apache &

Hope this helps,

--Gord
