I would run through the mirrors you have and check it a little bit.
Someone plesae mail me a copy of the current ftp.sites or whatever it is
called, so that I can update it with my archives of mirror sites.. I will
then modify the failure announcement :) when there are too many ftp's
with the output of that file. I will also give the status of the ftp
sites wether they have a full mirror or a part mirror up down or whatever...

_caught_ running in "user space" a.k.a. Anonymous are the mercy of a
kill -9 PID.
If you are still mirroring using anonymous please mail email@example.com
I will contact you from there.
Infact add,to the announcement, that if they want to become a public
mirror to mail
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I will then add this to all
needed files. (machine readable/human readable) Maybe for use with a ftp
method so it knows where to go so the user can select a local site..
Anyway other than that I would go for it...
