I have filled a wiki page explaining how to set up a mirror for the
archives :


Nick, I know you didn't want this to be on the Wiki but on
archive.xfce.org. But since we have some requests and don't like
repeating myself, I have used the wiki for now. Feel free to move and to
amend its content wherever your see fit.
