You suggesting having a perl related site without a mirror of CPAN ? :-)

As far as I am concerned, Debian mirror would be nice, i386, alpha and
Mandrake and RedHat are d/l at very nice speeds from official mirrors so
it's really not neccessary to mirror them and Slackware rarelly used (as far
as I know, I may be wrong), also we may mirror Gentoo as it's becoming more
stable and usefull besides being a "toy" as someone mentioned earlier on
Linux IL.

On the alternative, we may buy 160GB HDD and stick it at ISP's machine. That
way we'll have all the space we need and it's not so expensive.

 Maxtor 120GB ATA 133 5400RPM = 1051NIS (VAT included) from www.pandas.co.il
