Ok, this is testable now on http://gnu-ftpmirror.savannah.gnu.org
Let me know if it works alright.

Once it's setup, we can have the dns for ftpmirror.gnu.org changed.

I belatedly learned that Randy Kobes, the person who was running the

Fortunately, Sylvain implemented the redirector for dl.sv.gnu.org on
savannah and left some notes about it in download.txt (in bzr).
The question is about the redirector for http://ftpmirror.gnu.org, which
has always been running on Randy's machine. It seems the path of least
resistance to now also implement that on savannah, since sv already has
the necessary modules, etc. Sound plausible?
If anyone else is interested in taking this on, great, otherwise I guess
I feel duty-bound to be the one ...
