Just take it down. I check our monitoring every couple of days so
chances are I won't do that at the exact time you do your maintenance.
If I do I might check how long it is down, but worst case you get a
short mail from me.

For longer downtime it's best to send a mail to this list.

pacman will fall back to other mirrors if the users have more than one
listed in their mirrorlist so that's not too bad.
