I've been stared at really hard in #freebsduk to test the mailing  
list so here's what I sent a few days ago and got lost.
I've just checked out the five official uk mirrors for the main  
FreeBSD site and found that

No. 1 is out-of-date (no mention of 7.0 or 6.3)
No. 2 is dead
No. 3 is ok
No. 4 is dead
No. 5 ends up at and looks ok

Who checks on mirrors and decides when it might be time to remove  
them altogether ? Likewise for ftp and rsync ones which have been  
known to be dead or out-of-date.
