How is HTTP BT seeding different than ordinary mirroring (assuming the
server supports Range)? As I don't need to do anything on the server
side (that's my understanding for the moment at least), is there a
particular reason why I should care? We (mirrors) are still going to
serve that same content that we have already agreed to serve.

If this was just out of courtesy, then sure, thanks for asking,
apologies for the above, and feel free to add gg3.net to those torrent
files.
