Maybe we can map this out some more?  I know when we were initially
discussing how we would mirror the releases there was a lot of people
expressing support for MirrorBrain.  But more enthusiasm than

If we want to use MirrorBrain I think we would need:

1) Several volunteers to step forward and offer to help.  Not just
one, but two or more.  We can't be in a situation where the departure
of a single volunteer leaves the mirror network unsupported.

2) They would need to understand what is required to admin MirrorBrain.

3) The would need to work with Infra to get any needed rsync cron job
or whatever defined.

4) They would need to work with others in this project here on ooo-dev
to maintain the logic in the download webpages.

5) Finally, they would need to monitor a mailing list for questions
from mirror operators like this one.
