I am still in hospital and cannot easily do things as I wish in
this period. Read on below:

ok, now I get it. We should be able to find an GRASS/OSGeo
community member in the GRASS user or OSGeo discuss list
to offer a few GB and some bandwidth.
Maybe Madi, can you publicly ask?

ok, so still another South Africa mirror would be good.
Rainer or Gavin: any suggestions?

thanks for this. Let's see if needed.

So, what we have and how it works (relevant for Madi and me):

To "clone" the master server is now easy, one line of command essentially
which points to the polish server.

With Pawel Netzel who set it up, I already tried how to put the actually
mirror name onto the main page but it was not yet beautiful enough for
us. But that's a minor detail


PS: Those I have added here, hope that was ok. But I must be very
efficient these days.
