The existing mirrors are good with just occasional brief
outages for things like security updates.  I would suggest
using the mirror nearest you.

If anyone wants to add a full mirror you'll need 165GB right
now without nightlies and normally at least 200GB.  I operate
one of the mirrors with 250GB.  Expect 1-2TB per month of
downloads and maybe 10% of that for uploads.

The problem is the bandwidth between Tim's build farm and
the primary mirror.  Increasing the bandwidth would be a
significant ongoing expense.  Moving the build farm to the
"cloud" would be a significant ongoing expense.

When time permits Tim might want to move the web site to
a small reliable VPS and perhaps add a DNS redirector to
distribute load between the available mirrors.
