Yes, I know that.
For generating the Packages pages you/we will have to make other
arrangements now that auric is the authoritive source for Packages files...

...and since master.d.o will now mirror its archive from auric, I guess it
would be logical to tie Packages/ generation+mirror with the auric->master
archive mirror run.

Agreed, that would be good.
It would be nice if bugs.debian.org and lists.debian.org web hosts were
made, and links set up from previous locations. That would enable us to
move those two services even to another machine (do I hear "lully"? :)
in future, if the need arises.
The new sites could have their own mirrors, and I bet there would be
less of them.
BTW the virtual host thing ( :) ) has already been done or will be done with
qa.debian.org and nm.debian.org, and it's working just fine.

Yes. Also, the main site would be mirrored on more places then, most
people wouldn't mind mirroring 20 MB of our webwml stuff.
