I guess the question is "what file do you intend to move, and from where
to where". The idea is to remove file from the mirror, and to place them
in some directory where sysadmin can restore them if needed, and clean
this directory later.

Usually, that's around 1 package per week, at most. We do have a rather
important backlog for now http://check.mageia.org/missing.html after 2
months, and that's like 500 m packages. 

Anyway, this doesn't concern mirrors at all.

Click on "view". There is one single revision, as I wrote the script
before committing.
