Actually, we're in much better shape now. Christiaan at Plig has just
rebuilt his mirror and we now have another fast cvsup server and
www.uk.freebsd.org is now live again.

As to web mirrors, we currently have two but www2.uk.freebsd.org is
missing in action. If anyone has a mirror that they want to make publis
let me know, otherwise I'll set up another one on the maillist server.
