that's right! Just "be open", say, permit others to rsync from you.
All this originates from the times that the master site was grass.itc.it with
limited bandwiths. grass.osgeo.org is well connected (thanks to telascience.org)
so that we reach 2.x TB (!) peaks per months.

However, mirrors don't harm and we prefer a semi-decentralized infrastructure
in case the North Atlantic or Pacific network bones get cut. Still we'd remain
online :)

If you have enough bandwidth you may enable others to rsync from you.
Then please ping us here to update the mirror list (next of your mails will
go through directly).
