Please don't encourage private mirrors!
I have been the administrator of ftp.it.debian.org since a long time,
and I notice there are many sites doing nightly mirrors for their own
Mirroring is free for them because it's done at night when offices are
empty and there is nobody downloading porn, but the aggregated traffic
is significant for me!
They could save bandwidth and disk space just by using a correctly
configured squid cache.
