Hello everyone,

I created a mirror for Parabola. Add the following line to your 
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist to enable this mirror:

     Server = http://parabolaweb.eu/$repo/os/$arch

Syncing is done by parsing the db files and downloading any new files 
from the official mirror using HTTP. (The script will be published after 
some more clean up work. It's ~150 lines of Python 2 code.)

I used the mirror successfully on my i686 laptop, my i686 Linode and my 
x86_64 workstation and found no problems. I would appreciated if someone 
with mips64el could try the mirror.

At my location in Southern Switzerland, I get faster speeds than from 
the official mirror, on my London Linode slower speeds, but still 
multiple MB/s. Any other Europeans who could give this a try?
