We will keep the other rsync modules open as they have some cool 
stuff underneath - especially the mail archives.  =)

But, most mirrors will probably only be interested in the apache-dist 
module for now.  If you want to use more bandwidth (ours and yours) 
and more disk space (only yours), feel free to rsync the others...

Again, we might rethink our policy of mirroring the website in the 
future (just not anytime soon).  Right now, we're doing such a poor 
job of mirroring, that it is much more important to get distribution 
of releases using mirrors.  Once the dust settles and if our 
bandwidth is still a major concern, we'll investigate mirroring more 
of our content.  Baby steps!  -- justin
