Most of them don't, most of the time. Which is kind of silly, setting up a
disk pool or something, that nice sites like yours (ours?) could ask for
storage from. It would be a fairly low cost operation, and enable more
mirrors/sites to stay around and have more content.
But anyway, keep on asking. Just because you are most likely to get a no,
doesn't mean you will always get a no. But if you never ask, you will
never get anything.
But a smaller, local sponsor would probably be easier to convince, if you
can find them.
