running a ZEO-Client in Germany [on the server of German Zope User Group 
/ 100mbit-network] would be no problem... If we can find 3 or 4 other 
ZEO-mirror-friendly-admins (esp. Australia, Japan? Somewhere else, maybe 
USA, France, Netherlandes) we'll have a really good starting point.

That's right... but do you want to sync all the Zope-Products/ Howtos / 
etc. on Sourceforge too?
