Good stuff.  I fixed the 'miror' typo.

However, I'm confused as to why the page only lists source releases, not
binaries.  This seems deliberate ("This page gives access to source
downloads..."), but I can't see why binaries should be excluded.

I also have a rant on mirror URL spaces that I'll leave for a separate
email :)

I think the 6 projects not on the mirrors system need to be listed before
the page replaces the old one.
