5 We'd love to change the layout to something similar to what Michael
6 proposed. It's the actual changeover process that scares the bejesus out
7 of us. Many of our mirrors have diligent, professional admins who will
8 work with us to make the change. Some of our other mirrors don't. It's
9 easy to say, "well, screw those others, then" except when you consider that
10 our users will be the ones to feel the pain if a mirror doesn't pick up on
11 the change (or support the necessary sym/hard linking mojo to make it work)
13 If we can come up with a seamless, painless transition process, great,
14 let's make it happen.
