Go ahead, all our mirrors should be fine carrying a few hundred MBs of
data. However, I don't believe you for a moment when you say it's going
to be short term ;-)

By the way, is the old Sugar updater compatible with the new aslo
design? If it's not, then we'll have to keep around the old ASLO for
years to support the user base.

If propagation latency isn't an issue, you could export the files with
rsync from sunjammer from a cronjob every 10 minutes. You could either
use a public rsyncd, or ssh with a role account not the same account who
owns the files). Use a forced command in authorized_keys for extra security.
