I've been thinking lately that it might be a good idea to contact
people at gatekeeper.dec.com, ftp.cdrom.com or better, ftp.netnet.net to
mirror ftp.uni-regensburg.de. Netnet, in particular has the following in
Please comment on the performance, and sites that are mirrored.
If you have sugestions on aditional mirrors please advise me.
Please address any sugestions/problems/sugestions to email@example.com

A full mirror on the other hand, could update more often and even
handle mirroring an uploads/ directory.
I think netnet would be the best people to contact - they've

excellent transfer rates, and rarely have their maximium number of
