Yes, if its for public as well then...

I dont know anything about License issues in your country but I
*think* there is no problem...

please use rsync.

For that I need your gpg public key and the IP-Address of the mirror
server, as well as the http and/or ftp URLs under which the mirror
will be available.

You will then get an rsync account for that IP as well as some
required rsync parameters.

It might be usefull if you woul subscribe to the packman Mailinglist
as well.
