Hi Marcus,

don't count me as 100% on that yet, I want to know more about the OOo
mirrors too.

I just didn't want to be maintaining 150+ projects on one mirror system and
1 project
on another mirror system. maintaining one mirror system is easier, so If
that is possible
and our mirroring system can cope, and we can maybe coax a few more mirrors
our way
all the better. Some of our existing mirrors may decide that bandwidth is
too much and
leave, so we need replacements.

If it makes sense to try and merge these somehow, I want to pursue that
avenue.

We may need both for some time, we can not put non ASF releases on our
mirroring system
anyway so what we are trying to resolve is from our first ASF release
onwards.
