Exactly.  The only difference is that any commits 'trough' the EU  
mirror are proxied to the US master, and then replayed back to the EU  
mirror hence the lag, especially during periods of large commits.  So  
actually saving up commits is more detrimental than helpful.

Change to https://svn.us.a.o to avoid such delays.
