This was decided when you were coordinating the new website setup. If I
could remember, It was decided that the following sections were not to
be rsync'ed, to reduce space requirements for the mirrors: mailinglist
archives, lfs museum and news archives. Note that I could have
misunderstood such things.

But, personally, I think we should rsync news archives, to reduce yet
more main server's bandwidth usage.

I think you fixed it the proper way :). But, for sure, I will re-check
the scripts.
