[Assist] What has happened to Parabola mirrors?

Hi there 

Any news?
I am able - ready - happy to host a mirror in France would be nice to cover west Europe.
Any special requirements ? 
I got a server with a 100mbits connection 



I noticed the same problem.
And not only that one. When I try to sync abs i get 
this error:

# abs
==> Starting ABS sync...
@ERROR: max connections (12) reached -- try again later
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1635) 

This happens on different computers and networks I tried from at least two 
weeks. I just tried setting the UK mirror first in the mirror list, but abs 
behaves like before.
Any ideas why both things are happening and how to solve the problem?
