Well, it is now February already.

I will go through the backlog of mirror requests and start adding new
mirrors again. It is only myself in this effort so please be patient :)

Some outstanding issues remain:
- New deployment of mirrorstats.gentoo.org has been delayed. I will send
out an announcement here and on planet.gentoo.org when we get that deployed
fully.
- "Missing timestamp.chk" issue which was reported on this mailing list. I
will try to track that down soon. We have already looked at it and the
issue is non-obvious. Time to dig deeper.
- IPv6 rotations. Expect more communication soon regarding how to better
serve you and our end users.

On the positive note, I did get a new gentoo-portage rsync mirrors listing
available online at: http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors-rsync.xml - It
has all the mirrors listed, but there is still some formatting changes I
want to make. Eventually, we will put this link on the main gentoo.org
website too.

Thanks again for all of your hardware & bandwidth donations!
-Jeremy
