How secure is the rsync setup for the mirrors? How does it establish 
belgeraths' identity? Is it secure enough to protect against malignant 
people who try to hack the mirrors? I think we need to at least offer 
mirrors the possibility of rsync+ssh. But perhaps even this is too much 
for some mirrors.

A third option would be Anderson's original suggestion, which is to 
export static XHTML pages from TWiki and distribute these among the 
mirrors. This wouldn't solve the problem of "pushing" our changes 
immediately, but we could make a distinction between primary & secondary 
mirrors, just as Debian, where a primary mirror is always up-to-date, 
while a secondary mirror synchronizes on regular intervals (same as now).
