Thanks for the service! I've added it to our mirror list.

Please do inform us when anything has changed, so that we can update
our mirror list.

Actually, the only keypoint here is "being a mirror" -- it's already hard
enough to get mirrors for some 16 GB of data ;-)

Don't tell this any further, but the rsync service on cdimage.debian.org
does not require a password at this moment. That's only needed to reduce
unwanted traffic when an all-new Debian version is released, which I don't
expect until the 3rd quarter of this year (and probably even later).
You can just point your mirror at cdimage.d.o; the best time to ask
phil@hands.com for a password is when you get an access error meaning that
one is needed (he's heavily occupied at all other times ;-)
