Has the OpenBSD team given any thought to alternative methods of allowing
mirror sites to update their copies of say the FTP site besides that of
FTP using scripts like 'mirror'?
mirror seems to have some serious problems and certainly isn't very
efficient, why not use something that is aimed at mirroring of large
projects, say something like rsync? Not sure how many options there are
out there for more efficient mirroring, but I do know FTP mirroring of the
/pub/OpenBSD directory takes up a good deal of memory, time and bandwidth
which it doesn't seem to need.
