Message 1: Setting up LINGUIST Mirror Sites

Subject: Setting up LINGUIST Mirror Sites

We're asked periodically about the possibility of setting up new 
World Wide Web mirror sites for LINGUIST, and what our policy 
on these is. We think it would be useful to state it publicly to the 
list. So here it is.

	Anyone may set up a LINGUIST mirror, provided they conform 
to the following requirements:

	1. They must make their site an exact mirror of LINGUIST, i.e. 
they can make no changes which are specific to their site without 
consulting with LINGUIST.

	2. They must provide whatever maintenance is required to 
keep the site functional. 

	3. They must notify LINGUIST of their new site before they 
begin setting it up. 

We provide anonymous login from one site, from which the LINGUIST 
Web directories may be downloaded. The site is:

	ftp://www.emich.edu/pub/linguist

This site is updated every two hours. 

We should add a word of warning here: the LINGUIST site 
includes many thousands of files, and is growing very fast 
indeed. If you decide to set up a LINGUIST mirror, make 
sure you have a lot of disk-space.
