Hmm.. This might be a very good idea if someone would write the
jigdo-mirror script (or point me towards it if it is already done).

Also having the jigdo files and md5sums available for mirrors on a
separate path from any public cdimage access. If jigdo-mirror doesn't work
for everyone, it would probably be a good idea to restrict cdimage access
too. Last time (potato release) it was very painful to get the images for
us as an official mirror.

We will probably have rsync-debcd.acc.umu.se available on hardware
separate from ftp.se.debian.org at release time. We can't be sure, but it
will work (at worst the same as ftp.se.debian.org) and be the best choice
for others to mirror from.

For extra fun ftp.se.debian.org == ftp.gnome.org and the gnome desktop 2.0
release is currently scheduled for May 1st. :)
