Hi Erik,

Sorry its taken me a few days to reply I have been a bit busy with a few
other things. I managed to get my rsync line for the crontab setup and it is
now updating ok. Would it be possible to get the @ address for the mirror
changed to http://www.qualsec.net . Also is there any particular artwork for
mirrors to use to link to their mirror or the main site or should I use

We very much prefer HTTP mirrors so there's no real need to set up FTP 
access, especially for the US mirrors (we already have a bunch of US 
FTP mirrors).

We require at least one update per day, preferably between 2 and 4 
times a day. Have a look at 
http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html for more information and 
rsync examples.

Looks good and I have added your mirror to our list.

Looks like your mirror is updating fine. If you have any problems or 
questions don't hesitate to post to this list, there's usually someone 
around to help you out...
