OK, I withdraw the previous proposal mirror.XX.linuxdoc.org.

The following is FYI.

Various linux projects in japan share www.linux.or.jp as
http;//www.linux.or.jp/(PROJNAME)/, using apache virtual

ServerAdmin  webmaster@linux.or.jp
ServerName   www.linux.or.jp
DocumentRoot /home/www/root
Alias   /jrpm/          /home/www/jrpm/
Alias   /jrpm           /home/www/jrpm/
Alias   /lus/           /home/www/lus/
Alias   /lus            /home/www/lus/
Alias   /lbi/           /home/www/lbi/
Alias   /lbi            /home/www/lbi/
Alias   /rc5/           /home/www/rc5/
Alias   /rc5            /home/www/rc5/
Alias   /JF/            /home/www/JF/
Alias   /JF             /home/www/JF/
Alias   /JM/            /home/www/JM/
Alias   /JM             /home/www/JM/

Contents of each directory (/home/www/...) are provided
for mirrors with independent rsync modules, so that admin
of each site can select which to mirror.

If LDP would use this scheme, admins of local ldp site
could select which to mirror, even nothing but push all
YY's to his domestic (or any) mirror server.
