If my archlinux.pallissard.net has a 1Gbit uplink that is currently underutilized is there any reason that a feature request to move it to a tier 1 mirror would be denied?
Your mirror is rather new (only around 3 months old) while I'd like to wait around 6-9 months to see if issues occur and how/if they are solved.
Also we have 4 tier 1 mirrors in the US already, 2 Brazil, 2 Australia, 2 Germany, 1 France, 1 Taiwan, 1 Netherlands, 1 United Kingdom + kernel.org which has mirrors in multiple countries.
That said I'm not against a couple more in the US. My limit is somewhere around 6-8 and around 3 for other countries.
I'd love to get some tier 1 mirrors in other countries so if anyone has decent bandwidth, wants to become tier 1 and has been a mirror for 6+ months, please create a feature request on the tracker (include your bandwidth and your mirror's IP for whitelisting).
