We are preparing a new HK mirror (Push-Primary) and hope it can serve
as ftp.hk.debian.org, push has been set up and we need to let it run
for a week or so before assigning the domain name. Guys behind
ftp{,2}.cn.debian.org are involved in the process. If that works out,
it would be a great candidate to serve the ftp{,2}.cn.debian.org
domains to the resolve.

Let's make these work coordinated, but not sending random
requests/suggestions, which might give more confusions about what's
going on.

Best regards,
