I do personally prefer the idea that the initial mirror submission goes via a web form to Ralph and co direct as that would also ensure all the appropriate information is captured, further comms could then go via this list as normal without issue and would reduce some of the feeling of spam.

for the people always emailing about unsubscribing - please send an email to this address from the address you have signed up: centos-mirror-leave at centos.org

Kind regards,
