Hmm.. The current push mirror script generates isos (runs jigdo-mirror) 
for all the subdirs in the directory pointed to by jigdo/current, probably 
something to think about if we can avoid having to dig up contacts to all 
the mirrors and getting that script updated.

This is the script btw, "cd-mirror" in this location: http://www.acc.umu.se/~maswan/debian-push/cdimage/

I guess, if that needs to be updated, one could add some logic like a list 
of isos to build or something to be distributed too. At worst, some 
mirrors won't update and then either run out of space or take a very long 
time to build dvd images just to have them deleted once jigdo-mirror 
finishes (the last step is to run an rsync to cdimage.d.o to get 
everything identical).

Just some ide-disks in a sw raid setup. I might get something more serious 
lined up for later this winter, but nothing in time for release, I think.

Looking at it now, it might be possible to find the funds for a sata card 
and a couple of 200:ish disks to run in another sw raid setup.

I'm sceptical about adding more pata though, because we have very bad 
experiences running with many promise pata cards in one machine, and that 
pretty much the only card we can easily get hold of (and we already have 
one promise card in the machine).
