This would require _all_ mirrors to update the current rsync command

- - (contains the mirrorable website files)
- - (contains the website engine, _including_
the index files. See /home/httpd/
- - (contains misc. scripts like the LFS counter CGI
and the mailing list archives).

So try to see them as different sites for different things.

index.cgi and the swish-e engine.

Changing all /search.html links to
