here is at instant t a synthesis of what I saw (incomplete, to be discussed,
enhanced and clarified)

1) Seting up rsync.mageia.org

done, others welcome :)

> 4) Documentation
may be easier to update on the wiki ? (and synchronized when corrected /

I suggest editing http://mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=mirror.readme which is
on the wiki, rather than waiting for an update: this is to permit to any
people to add what you think is important to document about the mirroring
process (then Nanar will synchronize the documentation from time to time
from the wiki ; who said release early, release often?).

> Do you have comment or proposal about this process ?
I would have some proposals to promote collaborative work, particularly
about the structure, seeing only tier 1 is forgetting the whole use of
mirrors by developers and users in the end (and mirrors-admin in the middle
to determine what should be mirrored). That's why I tried to modelize it as
a mind-mind with xmind.

Just have a look at:
(well it's also a wiki, so feel free to edit it, you may download the xmind
source as well and edit it, just send it on the ML once updated, telling
what you've changed)
