Considering that it took more than 12 hours to propagate Xubuntu 9.04
to the existing mirrors, I think this is a great idea. I'm sure this is
true around the world. As a matter of fact, after 24 hours, we still do
not have mirrors up at Russian Federation, Germany, Australia, and
Europe. Having more mirrors could really benefit those trying to
download Xubuntu.
