We wanted to mirror it here in .ch but then decided against it. It
grows quickly, and mirroring makes no sense, because it's way too
much traffic, and there is a problem with time zones, since s.d.n
indexes by day, among others.

Instead, if you really want to set up a European mirror, buy
a couple of disks in Japan, ask them folks over there to make
a copy, set it up with the same scripts here, rsync it once, and
name it snapshot-eu.debian.net.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
