In anticipation of the upcoming Acorn 0.4.0 release, we need to get as large 
a pool of ftp mirrors as possible.

The current ftp archive is about 555MB on my machine, so you'll want a 
machine with a good amount of space.  Additionally, I've seen about 
1GB/month total download volumn recently.  However, considering the new 
Acorn pre-release media package is 250MB, I would expect the total bandwidth 
usage to increase.

There is some information on setting up a mirror on the 
http://www.worldforge.org/website/archives/downloads.html page.  If you need 
any help with setting up your software, or have other questions, don't 
hesitate to ask on this list, or drop in to irc.worldforge.org #infra.  By 
the way, weekly synching is probably sufficient, but daily is preferable.

If you do set up a mirror, please add it to the 
http://www.worldforge.org/website/archives/downloads.html page.

Thank you all for your help.
