Yes, that's what's behind .at

Rather small (~8 million people), between German and Italy,
Switzerland and Hungaria, Czech & Slovak Republic...

I'm planning to write two scripts

1) build-mirror:

This script will be run on each mirror via a cronjob. Frequency should
be definitly not more than weekly, better dayly.

*) fetches the docs from cvs
*) builds them with DocSet
*) runs the search indexer (using SWISH)

Sites running this script will need DocSet, cvs, SWISH-E
installed. This should be a requirement for all "official" mirrors

2) test-mirrors

This script will be run on via a cronjob. Should be in
sync with the building there, maybe even in the same script

*) request /index.html from each mirror (LWP)
*) check the timestamp
*) if last-modified is recent enough (say, 1 week) add to mirrors
*) add each mirror to a (new) Mirrors-DocSet

What do you think?
