    I adapted Randy's script to only use up-to-date mirrors for the

Good deal.

    (i.e. don't use bigsearcher's here).

I commented out bigsearcher, de-mirror, and centervenus from the web
page and deleted them from /vservers/sftp/srv/download/00_MIRRORS.txt (I
guess commenting out would be better, but anyway, backed up in ...~ for
now).  I wrote to the admins a few days ago and they didn't answer, so

    Randy: do we need to restart Apache2 when 'ctan.txt' changes?

FYI, your message didn't go to Randy, as far as I can see.
(I don't know the answer, but I surely hope not.)

    Karl, about the URL, what do you think of this:
    - we set as the multiplexer URL
    - we document another URL
      (e.g. for
      when people want to check the canonical location

We could try it, since I guess it'll make the most use of the mirrors.
It'll be a big change.  For example, if project maintainers put up a new
file and then go to to check
if it's there, they won't see it.  So it's something to announce and
document, for sure.
