Use the mirror tag to refer to a website that hosts the files, packages, and images that comprise a distribution.

A mirror is a website that hosts the files, packages, and images that comprise a distribution. These are typically served over HTTP or FTP and allow distributions to effectively distribute their packages globally, without relying on a single server or single point of failure.

These mirrors are kept in sync with the primary mirror(s) using rsync and are typically updated at least once per day.
