An ever-growing mirrors network, a year later

A year ago I wrote about Debian's ever-growing mirrors network, so it is time to review the numbers.

Compared to the numbers from last year, today Debian is being served via http by about 370 mirrors world-wide, and is also available via ftp from 330 mirrors. So that's an increase of 40 mirrors in one year!

The number of countries with Debian mirrors also increased to 76, 3 more since last year.

This has only been possible thanks to the sponsors hosting the mirrors.
During this year some sponsors have had to retire their mirrors, sometimes ceasing years of contributions to the project and its community.

A big thanks is deserved to past and current sponsors.
