        Is it not more sensible for all LDP mirrors to look eaxctly the
same - ie http://www.XX.linuxdoc.org/YY/ is identical - but only exist on
the servers where they are useful and others to be redirects.  This allows
content to depend on servers but all content to be available in a
consistent manner through all servers.  This should be easier to
administrate, to keep in order and for people to use.

        The problem is that this would require different LDP index pages
for different sites and that is more than mirroring - it is content
creation.  This has two problems - 1) many mirrors do not want to content
create just to mirror, and 2) if content creation is open to all mirrors
then they can get easily out of sync.

        Why not simply good links on the main LDP site and then everyone
who mirrors it gets those links automatically?
