Only rit.edu sometimes have a out-of-sync, but the reason is most times
not finished sync to rsync.al.org...

My suggestion is 2 per country if the count of mirrors in this country
is for ex. bigger than 4. Otherwise one per country.

My suggestion: public rsync access, a minimum of 4 times sync to
archlinux per day(often is better), university and well know hosters are
privileged above "private mirrors".

I have additionally (my list of rsync mirrors is not complete):
	ftp.yz.yamagata-u.ac.jp (FS#14627)
	ftp.rnl.ist.utl.pt )FS#15670)

I could try to check until weekend all mirrors if their rsync access
