For the record, how was your rsync initiated?  I fail to find any jobs
on ftp.skolelinux.no to push changes, and thus wonder if you ran rsync
locally to pull changes.  Wanted to remove any pointers or traces of the
old mirror, but do not know where to look.

I suspect the media files could have a better life on archive.org, if
someone feel inclined to do such upload. :)

Happy hacking
