I currently run a mirror for OpenOffice. I would love to host other
projects as well but I don't have the bandwidth :/
I am definitely willing to help get a project like this up and running.
Who could I contact at OSC/OIT/CSE to see if we can get some bandwidth
(or maybe hardware) reserved for a mirror server?
