Thanks, it seems like a solid base to show the mirrors.

I think the easiest setup would be to let the complete 
rsync. That way, if we change the stylesheet or anything else, it will 
automatically propagate to the mirrors. And since rsync only copies the 
changes, this shouldn't cause any additional delay. We just have to 
exclude the file which contains the passwords.
For the mirrors, this basically means setting up a vhost directive for 
that directory according to our instructions; they'd only have to change 
the location of that directory. As for the TWiki.cfg; isn't there a way 
to make it find out its own directory? A perl function which returns the 
CWD or something we can use?
