I disagree. People with excess upstream bandwidth but limited disk space can
still provide a valuable service. I think it's fair to assume that Apache is
still by far the most downloaded component of the apache project. Making it
known which mirrors mirror which packages would be good though. See the RedHat
mirrors list for a possible way of presenting this data to the user.
