Scripts and automation are your friends in the wilderness, I've a
stack of other plans for making the work required reduce to close to
zero but as always time is the problem.  If anyone wants the scripts
and bits which help me maintain the mirror list and DNS for
www|ftp.*.proftpd.org just shout, they're available for the asking.

BTW thanks for the ego boost, though it's actually only about 140
mirrors (that's counting both www & ftp mirrors) ;)
