other aspects that havent been covered so far:
- we need mirrors to distribute the load, and people willing to create rsync
mirrors are much easier than git
- along those lines, simplicity ... very easy to bring up a rsync mirror, and
the people maintaining our mirrors are familiar with it
- load on the system is higher with git than rsync (at least cpu wise), thus
we need beefier machines to handle the same # of clients
