In the requirements listed at
there are only two necessary packages that are not part of a standard
LFS install (and therefore, most likely, any other Linux distro), Apache
and Rsync, both of which all current mirrors have.  (TWiki:
Codev.RcsLite) is mentioned but that is included in the site that we
would push, RCS is listed as a possibility if a mirror chooses to
install it.  If a mirror chooses Option 1, the only real difference
would be that they would now need to run rysnc as a server and open port
873 with access based on hostname or ip address.
