FTP server disk allocation

Is that really accurate? Wow.

What is that? stable, testing, and unstable? Or is that prior releases too?

My point is that does anyone really need Buzz/Rex/Bo/Hamm for MIPS? In Hangul or Lithuanian? (no offense meant).
More specifically, does anyone in the LUCI/SILUG/ArchLUG (Saint Louis/midwest) region care enough about
these for Steve to allocate the limited/valuable disk space resources that KSPEI has to them?

You'd be better off burning that stuff to a CD or DVD left in a network-mountable drive.

Or take a vote. I'd love to see Xandros/Kubuntu/Ubuntu mirrors, and wouldn't mind giving up
a big chunk of that 129GB of Debian mirroring to get it.

Is there a way to "virtualize" the mirror via redirects to sections of the repository not carried locally?
i.e. for the 390, 68k, ia64, and pa-risc ports, or the proposed-updates for example.
Thus freeing up space for other things.
