I think wobo meant "local" mirrors, e.g. the mandrivauser.de mirror
was mainly used by German users who found out about it from
mandrivauser.de forums. (and having a list of "unofficial mirrors"
will be a pain, how would one differentiate "unofficial" mirrors that
just don't mirror some sub-trees, e.g. debug, and "unofficial" mirrors
that are just plain old/don't-get-synced-regularly).
