We're moving to round-robin DNS. This basically means that there will be 
a rotating pool of up-to-date mirrors to which a user is dynamically 
redirected. Mirrors will be automatically synchronized, or if not 
possible, automatically removed from the pool. At least, that's the 
theory. So far, RR-DNS is used for IRC and is intended for FTP. For the 
website, we must at least write synchronization scripts, and adjust 
TWiki to use https for editing (this also secures authentication & 
editing), and redirect this to belgerath only (probably easiest solution).

The only bad thing ATM is that we are nowhere near ready for deployment 
of the TWiki. We're not feature-complete yet nor are we ready for wider 
feedback. So we'll just have to be patient :-)
