[arch-mirrors] Outdated mirrors

Is it just me or are most of the arch mirrors outdated/slow-syncing? I
sync every hour and its always the same. When there is a KDE update or
so all the mirrors get outdated. This was a problem with the old
mirroring scheme, and to me it seems to be the same now. Is this a
problem with few Tier-1 mirrors or is archlinux.org still overstrained
when there are huge updates?

I am ready to set up rsync and allow 10-20 mirrors (start with 10 and
see how it works with the bandwidth) in Europe, preferred Germany - if
this can help us get our mirrors synced fast even with such updates.

I think a bleeding-edge linux distribution should definitely not have
issues with slow syncs. When there is a security update or an update
like KDE it should be out there as fast as possible, no matter which
mirror you use.
