Hello everyone,

I'm relaying Nick's request on the translation ML since it is composed
of people from all over the world. I know that most of you are not
sysadmins but maybe you know someone who could help us.

If you can help us of if you have any question, please directly contact
Nick and me.

To give everyone an update, archive.xfce.org is online and we got 3
new mirrors: http://archive.xfce.org/feeds/collection/xfce.mirrorlist

But still no new mirrors in the continents we hoped for!

The requirements also changes a bit now we use mirrorbrain:
- Virtual host is not a requirements anymore.
- We'd prefer rsync readonly access for the mirrorbrain server, so we
can quickly check the mirror status.
