I see so many run-of-the-mill projects that have mirror services all over the world. It sure seems like a favorable project like TDE would be a prime candidate to be accepted and helped by some of these institutions. For my learning, if somebody can mirror, would all that would need to be done is to have some cron job push TDE to the mirror to keep it updated, or is there more to it than that? I see a mirror as just (storage + band width). For TDE, that's about 8G in storage. Is that about it? -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
