This is actually a very good idea. There's some space left on my machine, too, so I have just installed a regular mirroring of the above URL. It will appear at: If anyone else has any conlang/conscript/conhistory to mirror, just tell me, I'll add it to the mirroring process as long as my server has enough storage left. Let's start with a (weakly enforced) 5MB limitation per person (I have about 500MB free without having to think much and a little more if I start to think. It's not the largest hard drive out there.) Please keep the number of files low (maybe up to 100 would be ok). The URL you provide should be http or https and it will be recursively mirrored once a day. I'll add versioned archiving to another machine later (via versioned rsync). In the first version the versioning will not be public (but you can ask me at any time whether there is an old version). So, send your URL if you want to be mirrored! If anyone wants to implement secondary mirroring, you could simply mirror the following URL then, but it introduces a single point of failure (=my machine): Alternatively, you can mirror only the file and implement your own archiving from that file. Still single point of failure, but only for the list of URLs, which is probably ok. **Henrik
