You know the mirrors of the kernel source, the GNU tools, etc?  It's

Typically, a mirror distributes bandwidth usage or moves bandwidth usage
onto a more capable line.

It can also serve the purpose of making all or some of an archive
publicly available, by mirroring out to a reachable host (as opposed to,
say, a home computer on a modem with no hostname).

        This last point I completely understand.

I'd like to be able to do some offline development. I guess the problem is not an easy. I suppose the best thing to do there is create a local archive an do an import, then create a patch and all that.

SPY                      My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
