Err, didn't Steve just say LUGs would get direct access?

OTOH, mirror is meant to be a mirror, so it's a Really Good Idea to
have a primary copy of the content it's hosting somewhere else, in case
ANU explodes, eg. That doesn't have to be internet connected though --
it's only needed if the mirror needs to be repopulated, and any secondary
mirrors can't do the job.

So unless I'm misunderstanding something, this policy _doesn't_ exist.

Don't forget cross-LUG synergies! We can leverage the buggery out of
