That's what I thought. Even monitoring a single download mirror could
be enough, if it's not an obscure and unpopular one. At least gathered

can think of a single mirror as a good approximation of the whole
community, excluding i18n/l10n packages, which are highly dependendt
on the physical location of the mirror itself.
