At the moment the easiest way for you to mirror our content would be via
wget. You would want to generate a list of the most recent completed
dumps, or we might make such a list available on a biweekly basis. I
need to think about the best mechanism for that. There is also an RSS
feed which gets updated whenever a job is completed.
We should also at the minimum provide the the user a static list of
mirrors (even if that list contains only one site at first) so that
people can reach you easily.
Would you be willing to add your basic information to the mirroring
page? You can contact me off list for coordinating the technical
details, if you like.
I really appreciate your offer; hopefully this will be the beginning of
a new mirror-ful year :-)

I run a Data Storage / Backup company and I recently posted to reddit (redd.it/eus9z)
about the fact that we have extra bandwidth/storage available and wanted to use it to do
something good for the internet as a whole. From there I was referred to this
and I saw you had yet
to find a partner.
In looking at the requirements 10TB of storage and 200 megabit (!20Mb/s sustained) would
be trivial for our company to provide and we would be happy to provide it as a service
free for the community.
Please let me know what the next steps are so we can talk about the technical
requirements to get this in place.
