1. okay - i've been looking for the mirrors discussion list and can't 
seem to find it - any chance somebody could post a link os something?

2. I can't imagine this would be a problem for the official mirrors? I 
believe it's a matter of finding a solution (simple protocol if you 
will) that allows the mirrors to provide an even better service without 
too much fuss. It could also be a great way for a central 
(fedoraproject.org or something) status page that could easily poll the 
official mirrors for status and such.
