While I don't run an official mirror, it is public (due to my laziness)
for debian/sarge on x86/ppc and a "testing" AMD64 mirror.  And I am just
wondering why anyone would use RAID in a mirror for. RAID provides for
the security of your data in case a disk fails (and occasionally
performance boosts). But... its already a mirror... if my drives die, I
just run debmirror....  The mirror will be gone for a bit, but thats
not a huge loss (Usually).

I guess if the network is expensive then thats an issue. But if the
network is expensive why are you running a mirror in the first place?
