Bio-Mirrors for SRS data sets

Dear SRS folks,

To keep biosequence and related data sets updated for the
Bio-Mirror project I work with,
I've written a set of automating Perl packages.  These
are tailored to my local uses, but may be adapted to other
servers using these data.

See this url for available Bio-Mirror databanks 

See here for the software which automates databank
updating (including srs indexing when done locally).
This software is still under development, but it seems to be 
working out.

Tim Littlejohn suggested we add SRS indices to the Bio-Mirror set, 
to allow folks to copy them rather than run SRS build jobs locally.  
That sounds like it could be useful.  Does anyone have comments?

Those of you who push around gigabytes of bioinformatic
data on the Internet are welcome to make use of
Bio-Mirror archives of these, and to join this group
in providing other points of public access to this data.

Bio-Mirrors are a world bioinformatic public service for
high-speed access to up-to-date DNA & protein
biological sequence databanks. These databanks
have been being growing so rapidly that
distribution is hampered by existing Internet

The Bio-Mirror project provides high-speed access,
with nighly updates, to these large data sets, some
exceeding 10 Gigabytes. Project sites are connected
with Internet2 infrastructure of vBNS, Abilene,
TransPAC, and the Asia-Pacific Advanced Network
(APAN). To learn more, see http://www.bio-mirror.net/
