I will go for bandwith then asking for rsync as requirement.
A torrend would optional.
Some things I would like to assure mirrors have to:
- have directory layout
- same names
Features I would also like to have
- having a "Last_version" symlink to the last version.
(keep links valid over time)
- list of mirrors on the website
- or better mirror autoselection
Besides from getting bandwidth is there a way I can help to achieve
this? (I guess ssh access would be needed)
