It's not a complete mirror, though it does contain:
* -current (in all its forms, including xsrc and pkgsrc)
* the latest release
* the arch/ subdirs, though not for all architectures
That's a pretty useful mirror.. It does not have the ALPHA and
BETA stuff, but that's because those weren't exported using SUP.
At first at least, I believe that this has now been changed, but
it's too late for me to change the setup to fetch those now.
I can't make it a complete mirror because of disksize constraints.
If there's someone within .nl with the opportunity to provide
a fast, stable and complete mirror, I'll be happy to pass the buck.
