Is there a mirror FAQ ?

perhaps this could be the start of one or getting the
existing one revised.  the one below perhaps needs
modification as it is a wishlist.

o What are the requirements to mirror apache ?

  If you wish to be a public mirror of apache, you need the following

  o a unix system
  o 5G of disk space currently (8G preferred over the next 12 months)
  o an average of a 100M/day incoming, with upto 2G+ possible in a single
    day's update if daily builds are happening.
  o a web server (preferably apache?) and anonymous ftp service installed
  o a rsync client

Your web server needs to be able to be configured to support

Apache mirroring is handled in two tiers.  Tier-1s must mirror at least
twice daily and make their apache mirror available to downstream sites
via rsync.  They should have at least a T3 connection to the Internet.

Tier-2s, the vast majority, can sync from the closest Tier-1, otherwise
the master apache server.  They should have at least a T1 connection
to the internet, unless they are the sole mirror in that country/region.
