Hi, Johannes!

I guess it wasn't clear what I've tried to tell/suggest you
because I used different nomenclature.

One problem I experienced of our non-distfile-hosting structure is
that if the distfiles of the remote sources are missing, a package
cannot be built.
In this case (and only this one) we can let pkgmk -d fall back to
a crux-latest-distfile-backupserver (the slave) which had pulled the
distfiles from the remote sources once and at the time when the Pkgfiles
(on the master(s)) have changed.

I would only backup the latest ports trees distfiles and suggest the
users to update the ports tree to make sure to use current, available
distfiles, too.

I don't expect that you tell me the estimated traffic. It would
be sufficient to know the current traffic or port download frequency
of the port downloads. (rsync, httpup, cvsup)
