That's the goal. One thing I'm adding is for the mirror admins to be
able to upload their rsync/ftp/http logs back to our central database
to be analyzed. I haven't done anything more than put in a
placeholder yet, but that's the goal. It would of course be opt-in
from the perspective of the mirror admin, and they are free to
sanitize the logs before sending them to us (e.g. send only data
related to the Fedora directories on their servers). This way we get
the actual traffic data as seen by the mirrors as opposed to a landing
page which isn't.
