Sorry if this is a duplicate.... Gmail just locked up for a few
minutes.  I am not sure what got sent and what did not.

Ibibilo is now hosting sugarlabs stuff!   Would anyone be willing to
add this mirror to the mirror database.

It is a two minute job:)  But I would like someone besides me to know
how to maintain the mirror database in case I get hit by a bus:(

We have set nightly mirroring of the Sugar software, and have
tentatively excluded the snapshots directory.

Your users may reach our mirror via the following locations:


Please let us know if you have any trouble.
