apache-dist is the right one.  apache-site is a superset of apache-dist,
but the extra stuff is not necessary.

I don't have any problem with a few times per day, but 4x per hour seems
excessive for our needs, and a possible drain on resources.  (It is not as
big a deal if you change to mirroring only apache-dist, since that is
relatively stable.  The other sites tend to have very large, frequently
updated files -- mbox mail archives -- so you would use a huge amount of
bandwidth if you update that frequently.)

Just to make sure that we are on the same page, could you please resend
your information with the one site that you are mirroring.
