Slackware rsync mirrors?
 
For those of you using rsync to maintain local slackware mirrors, what sites do you source from?

The site that Pat often quotes on the security alerts is normally osuosl.org but they say that they'd rather people didn't mirror from them.

This host is the home to the primary archives of several
projects. We would prefer that only primary/secondary
mirrors use this service. Thanks!

I try to be considerate of where I download from, so I don't use osuosl because they ask that we don't. But other sites aren't so clear as to whether they're intended for the public or not. So, how do you guys decide where to mirror from?

Normally from http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/slackware/ (slackware.mirrors.tds.net::slackware).

Yet as of 5PM local, that site had not been synced with the latest 13 and current. :scratch:
