Ok.  I've made a few updates to this page:
http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html

Including:
- Current apache-dist size up to 5GB.
- Recommend 2-4 updates per day.  It seems our developers are too
impatient to wait 24 hours for stuff to get out to the mirrors.
- Remove the recommendation to sync between 8am and noon GMT, since apache
bandwidth usage is really pretty constant through the day.  See:
http://www.unitedlayer.com/customerbw/apache
- Clarify that http mirrors are preferred.
- Clarify that you must host your own logo.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Joshua.
