I support changing the link on the downloads page to reference the wiki. This would, however, allow end users to modify the mirror page thus changing the mirror list in a way that may be seen as more 'official'.
We could perhaps lock the mirrors page, but that semi-defeats the purpose of the change control suggestion.
Any thoughts or feedback of a high caliber?
I'd rather have the static mirror page for the reasons you mentioned. It seems kind of... open... to have a wikified mirror page.
If someone wants to add a mirror, it's not that hard to mail one of us and ask to have it added/removed/whatever, which amounts to the same thing as a locked wiki page, except the non-wiki page is prettier 8)
