Hi Jose, Thank you so much for the offer. I am terribly sorry that you have not gotten a response to your requests. An offer of kind help should never go unanswered. As I am new to the rsync team, I did not get any previous e-mails. So, let us begin. If you could provide us some details as to time restrictions (ie, will the rsync change in a few weeks/months, etc) and upload limits. It is our experience, you see, that rsync mirrors with a user cap of 10 users tends to cause more frustration for users than solve problems. Thus, as a matter of policy we are only considering mirrors with a minimum cap of 20. Please do let me know these things, and I would be more than glad to add your rsync mirror to our lists. And, again, my sincerest apologies for your having to extend this offer multiple times.
