Mirror sites for IUCr W3 services

Dear EPC,

  I have received copy of this correspondence between Mike Dacombe, the
IUCr execsec, and Judy Fillpin-Anderson, Secretary of the US National
Committee for Crystallography, concerning a second mirror site for the
IUCr Web services in the USA.

  I think the EPC should express an opinion to the execsec for
transmission to the IUCr executive on the desirability of this second US

  Personally I vote 100% in favour. Would you please let me have your
thoughts, comments and opinion on this matter.

Best wishes,
