Description

We have a great new, simple "download tor" page for quick deployment, https://github.com/wpapper/tor-download-web/ or https://wpapper.github.io/tor-download-web/

setting up download mirrors of this site with mirrors of www.torproject.org/dist should be easy.

Do we setup a new domain of download.torproject.org and it incorporates the site and dist automatically? Do others mirror the download site like they mirror the current www.torproject.org site?

Our ideal when building the site was to make setting up a mirror as easy as possible. Ideally, someone can just run one command with rsync to create a working mirror, with the dist files included.

Creating a new mirror which automatically incorporates the site and the dist automatically seems best, since I assume that there will be people who want to run a download mirror but may not want to run a mirror of the entire website. On the other hand, integrating the mirror into the current torproject.org mirror would allow it to spread faster. Could we pursue both options, or ask torproject.org mirror operators to also run a download mirror?

Also, having a version of the site hosted at something like download.torproject.org would be great, so that potential mirror operators can easily try the site out before they mirror it. It also allows for a simplified downloading experience in general, so it may be useful to make it available.

Hrm, I believe that the changes we made to the mirroring setup allow people to quite easily decide whether they want to be website or dist mirrors or both. I think this is done
