Mirroring for personal use, or for use in your organization is not
distributing it, and therefor you would not be responsible under the
GPL for making source available.  The issue I have is wether Debian
mirrors which are for public access, which would be distribution,
would be required to also mirror source.

please note the multiple craigs in this thread when reading.
