YES! Please please please do use mirrorbrain, OpenSuse, TDF
(LibreOffice), VLC, XMBC and others (see: http://mirrorbrain.org/users/)
use it. Actually most of the traffic mirror.netcologne.de receives comes
from various mirrorbrain instances.
It does wonderful things (http://mirrorbrain.org/features/):
* Load-Balance by GeoIP / AS matching (traffic stays very local)
* Intensive checks (even via rsync) regarding mirror consistency
** It can serve things down to the file level to a mirror that
still/already has a certain file
* automatic hashing to check for
* meta links
* torrent support (so mirrors could function as HTTP seeds)
