fauno, is there a way to accomodate arm?
Indeed the snipet is very simple and I think I understand it, but I
don't actually _know_ nginx config and wouldn't know how to move from

This would certainly pose a bandwidth usage increase to those mirrors,
but that doesn't make Parabola liable in any sense. Mirror owners
should understand that they are serving freely distributable software,
publicly on the Internet; and they must take the risk of their service
being used in ways they never imagined, like serving packages for an
Arch derivative and not Arch. Asking them is a good idea even if only
to avoid mirrors that would otherwise feel uncomfortable, for the sake
of politeness, not because we would actually need to apologise.
I don't even think we would be risking mis-servicing our users, would
we? They could hardly try to identify requests coming from Parabola
users and ban them.
