Thanks Bernhard, find herebelow some remarks.

I think we should add a mirror test page so that admins can be sure of
the state of their mirror (no, http://www.de.debian.org/dmc/today is not
enough complete), because there are so many parameters defining a
"mirror good to be added".

I have just added it, see #422305

http://debian.funlam.edu.co/debian/project/trace/ contains no
debian.funlam.edu.co nore www.funlam.edu.co local trace file.
The local trace file should be the site name if possible, it makes QA
much easier.

http://debian.funlam.edu.co/debian/dists/ shows (we cannot see the whole
name of certain directories) that
http://www.us.debian.org/mirrors/ftpmirror#settings is not applied.

According to http://debian.funlam.edu.co/debian/pool/main/b/base-files/
the dsc files are missing.

We must not mirror from ftp.debian.org
http://www.us.debian.org/mirrors/ftpmirror#wherefrom given that saens is
saturated : http://saens.debian.org/mrtg/saens.eth0.html

I guess it is not private anymore .. (but don't worry, once in the CVS,
it would have been the same)

http://debian.funlam.edu.co/debian-non-us/ can be removed.

The info about the architectures mirrored is missing

Same remark about the name of the local trace file.

>   Packages archive, over HTTP: /debian/

Same httpd config as above.

The info about the architectures mirrored is missing

So in the Mirrors.masterlist's format: "Country: SK Slovakia"

So in the Mirrors.masterlist's format: "Sponsor: Ynet http://www.ynet.sk/";

Good cheer for your future mail conversation with admins :-)

If you still have some unprocessed backlog, I can help.

(Tip: adding people to the mirrors alias would help to process mails
before it becomes outdated backlog :-)
