It is unnecessary hard to find the URLs of the mirrors in case the 
primary server is down. Might I suggest erlang.org doing something 
similar to lots of other sites, with www2.erlang.org, or 
www.se.erlang.org and www.other-tld.erlang.org etc?

I can set up a mirror at Stockholm university, but I either have to 
invent a name for the mirror site under su.se, or have one provided by 
you (a CNAME to one of our web servers).

Also, DNS for erlang.org has been a bit flakey for me at times, with 
only two servers listed in .org. I could set up secondary DNS service 
(even with IPv6 if you want) for erlang.org too if you wish.
