Tim and I were hard at work today and so the mirror is ready for 
startup.  Attached is the updated lfs-ftp-rsync.sh script for the 
mirrors.  We kept the existing one and just updated it for the new 
server and module names.  We agreed on keeping rsyncing daily.

Admins for existing mirrors:  Could you please just give us a quick 
email with your rsync time?  That way we can assign rsync times for new 
mirrors better.

The becomemirror.html changes: 
1.  The contact person needs to be changed to either Tim or myself or 
both (or we cc eachother when we get them)

Besides that, we think it is ready.  Tim and I have already tested and 
rsync'ed our own servers and got the packages updated for the current 
unstable book.

Any questions or problems, send us an eMail.
