  		<h2>Become a mirror</h2>
  			<p>Here's a quick rundown on what you need in order to become an LFS mirror:</p>
  				<li>The rsync program to mirror the LFS websites</li>
      		<li>A cron like program to run the update script daily</li>
  				<li>A way to send an email telling whether or not the update script ran successfully</li>
  				<li>Between 3 and 10 MB hard drive space for a website mirror</li>
  			<p>If you're interested in becoming an LFS mirror, send an email to <a href="mailto:server-admin at">server-admin at</a> and provide the following information:</p>
  				<li>The location of the server (country and city)</li>
  				<li>The hostname and/or IP address to access the mirror (*)</li>
  				<li>Whether you're going to mirror the website, ftpsite or both</li>
  				<li>The available upload bandwidth for your server</li>
  				<li>How long you need to bring the mirror online</li>
  			<p>(*): If at all possible, we'll want to assign a subdomain to your mirror, like and</p>
  		<h3>rsync templates</h3>
  			<p>A <a href="">template</a> is available for the web site. This script will run once a a day and e-mail the rsync exit status (either an OK or FAILED). The template uses mutt to send the email, but feel free to change this to suit your needs.</p>
