Mirror.ac.uk to close

It's being reported that mirror.ac.uk will stop providing mirror services from the 1st of August due to the contract from JISC held by Lancaster University & The University of Kent being lost.

Considering a lot of projects host their projects on mirror.ac.uk and not at any other site, some projects will have to move. Will anything be lost for good?

If the contract has been lost - surely some other group or organization will take over the mirror. Loosing a contract, would usually mean someone else has got it, rather than something being removed and no longer maintained.

We'll have to wait and see. Let's hope it does not die!
At least we will still have the various SunSITE's around the world.
