A reverse proxy wouldn't work - at least not directly - because we upload to
download and the scripts maintaining the package list also run on download and
expect files there and the mirrors use rsync.

I wonder why you never participated in the "no space left on device" thread
that started back in 2016 (and even back then this was nothing new), although
you were mentioned a couple of times as the only one that had privileges to do
the cleaner and easier solution of just expanding the vm's disk.

NFS is just the second "best" solution - but was in reach.  And now it's in use
simply killing it without a replacement disrupts service, which is
"not-that-great" either - or better put IMHO no option at all.
