I don't think a vote needs to be taken, since we voted positively on 
this in the past. I do think content should maybe be asked to produce a 
paragraph to go with it, explaining why it's there.

As far as I'm aware, mirror sites just serve the files, they don't 
present pages to visitors.. visitors visit the evolt browser page, 
select the file and are handed off to a mirror.

Since we're talking about mirrors though, I think it might be a courtesy 
to inform them we are doing this, and why, since they've volunteered 
bandwidth. Yada yada, nfp, yada, running costs, yada sustainability, 
blah blah future expansions, yada, activities blah.
