This is correct, I use a hard link copy of the mirror and add
disks-hurd-i386 to it.

This time round the templates could be even bigger as I plan to
incorporate Robert Millan's and Michael Banck's archives into the local
file system. However, even if the templates got to 500 MB (which is a
pessimistic guess), it would be only 20% of the size of the images
Provided that we can set up a northern hemisphere mirror with a fast
connection the images could be built in about 12 hours from the start of
the upload from here.
This would not achieve all the objectives, but would be a good start.
