a few things to note ... the only 'critical' thing right now that can't be 
mirrored is the cvsroot/mailing lists ... web and ftp are both well 
mirrored, and, in fact, ftp.postgresql.org is on a seperate network/server 
that I have ... archives was also moved there, and over the next few days, 
will be pointed to one of commandprompt's web sites ...

in fact, bittorrent, ftp and archives are all on a US based server ... 
what I'd like to do is setup www.postgresql.org to point, via dns round 
robin, to the www.us.* mirrors, so that hits to it are more load balanced, 
but that requires some major changes to the mirrors themselves, and few of 
them are configured to recognize a virtual host of www.postgresql.org 
right now, as I found out not too long ago :(
