Subject Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT]: Xerces-J 2.4.0 now available
Date Sat, 29 Mar 2003 09:36:20 GMT
i notice that this release does seem to be mirrored.

xerces-J is an important and widely used product. so i'd say that it'd be 
a good candidate for mirroring.

i've cut a few mirrored releases in jakarta land and have been assembling 
some documentation on the apache mirroring system for other release 
managers. so i can probably give people a few places to start if 
xml.apache.org wants to start moving to use the apache mirrors.
