I have a dedicated server that can be used as an xfce mirror :)
Server is located in France in OVH server farm.

Please let me know how can i became a mirror, is there any documentation?

> - Should be hosted on a decent server with a good connection.

> Now you all know we're still on track to release Xfce 4.8.0 this
