There is no umbrella as long as "archlinux.org" domain is not involved.
I'm not proposing sharing our master mirror from which every server
syncs packages from, but additional spare boxes that are in the areas of
the world where in general we had few mirrors.

(Re-)using our bug tracker is different subject than is unrelated for
now. Let's move away from flyspray before we start being an umbrella.
