Somewhat yes, but with some problems these days to get mail in a
reliable way from Apache (probably it's my server fault): I missed the
original post and your reply got me thinking, so eventually I found it
on MARC. Not to mention that I posted this originally under an identity 
that wasn't subscribed to the list, so it must be sitting somewhere 
waiting for moderation: my dumbass hat starts looking pretty worn out. 
:-/ Sorry for the inconvenience and for jumping in late in the discussion.

It my intention to use the mirroring guidelines for the more-or-less
upcoming version of Xindice, so expect both help and questions here. :-)
How do we want to deal with the mirror list and xml.a.o./dist? A plain
list or something smarter like mirrors.cgi?

This is a good point indeed, though both
http://httpd.apache.org/dev/release.html and
http://nagoya.apache.org/wiki/apachewiki.cgi?SigningReleases provide a
good reference and enough starting points. Maybe we should make our own
release. Would it make sense to have a "dev" section on xml.apache.org
and make our own version of developer (committer) oriented documentation
or would that be just a duplicate?
