In the short term, reinstating the mirror of /trunk/ext_sources is
pretty important without a lot of additional testing/setup directly from
the source repositories of these items. So, I would vote YES on this.

What is required of the administrator(s)?

No apology needed. I think the majority of us are not current on
SourceForge policies so we were not aware of this change. As far as I
know, Apache OpenOffice was happy to have the SourceForge mirror service
for these additional sources.
