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).
