It's true that we never had any plan for rsync/debuginfo, but I got some
requests for this ..
Actually our (donated) nodes pool for debuginfo is too small for this
and to let everybody rsync content from us (also why we had to setup an
ACL for the ::CentOS and ::altarch modules/targets)

Now, wondering if we can still (while we work on a better way) allow
some specific IPs, and publicly announce that for the time being,
everybody can rsync from , for example,
rsync://mirror.facebook.net/centos-debuginfo/ ?  Would that work for
everybody ?
