Yeah, I've been thinking about that for my ISP (which I think
was mentioned here before, but mis-nomer'd...) since I already
end up with large swathes of Debian/i386 and Debian/PPC sitting
in apt's archives on my servers.

Not had any enquiries from people so far, so I hadn't made the
effort. Given our focus on unmetered plans, I don't think it's
a cost issue, but a speed issue.

Well, no time like the present. Debmirror's initial run has
commenced. :-)

Gonna grab non-US and the jigdo stuff too.

Blah, gonna take a little while to run. If anyone's actually
interested, I can let people know (off-list is probably preferred)
when its ready.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
