no problem.

i think rsync does not bring any protocol inherent capabilities
for virtual hosting along?
so we would need a new ip for this host or mix your targets
with the existing ones? is it likely targets will collide? would
it be okay for you to "share" targets on this host?
(or maybe *does* rsync support virtual hosting?)

(means to rsync with --delete? ;)

no probleme here, sir...

if we can clarify point 2 we are willing to participate, if we
dont need to use a new ip adress. if capacities of servers are
low, then we'll do it though.
