[maemo-community] Official Mirrors

I totally agree.  I could see Nokia balking at having it's repository mirrored (for the proprietary bits), but the Maemo.org stuff should all be mirrored by a few archive areas, and having fall backs is nice.

If you're considering mirroring devel and testing, it may be worth re-visiting some type of clean-up policy again, since mirrors don't like to archive lots of old/inactive/outdated versions of packages.

after several "not available" messages for N900 users I thought about
setting up "professional" mirroring would be usefull for our community

For this we need:
1. an official mirror list in our wiki
2. rsync at the repository.maemo server
3. requests send out to mirrors (univerities) all over the planet
and maybe a policy (we should follow what ubuntu and debian does).

For this we could setup:
 * a mirror URL for traffic sharing
 * regional mirror URLs
 * nokia to include it with HAM to have a fallback for future server

what do you think?
