I'm currently running the German Debian at ftp.uni-erlangen.de. Maybe
we could fill the hole that Dominik at ftp.uni-mainz.de leaves, for

No problem :-) Our ftp server is a multi-processor CDC machine,
dedicated for ftp and ftp-related HTTP services.

Don't know what T1 is, but uni-erlangen.de is directly located on the
German WIN (science net) backbone. WAN transfer rates to other sites
on the backbone can easily reach 500kB/s :-)

Could make a symlink for that. Currently it's /pub/Linux/debian.

We're running apache, so this should be possible.

We have the bug archives already, the mailing lists supriously
disappeared from ftp.debian.org several days ago... Before that, we
had them, too.

We currently have ~ 2 GB for Debian (full distrib, bug reports). But
we're desparately waiting for some new disks (20 GB) being built in
(technician on holidays... *&^&&*$%$#^)

So, if there's no other German mirror for ftp.de.debian.org, we'd
volunteer for it. For www.de.debian.org, I first have to check some
points with other people, but seems no big trouble.
