Matt Domsch is working on just such a tool and is looking to have it in place for F7 release, afaik. The tool is Mirror Manager.


This looks like a very competent tool indeed and there's no doubt that it will be very useful for a lot of cases. However I have no idea how the mirror validation in the package will work, I just hope it will be implemented in a way that will be usable without special tools. Having a way to validate a mirror from within the ftp directory listing is very valuable - especially to mirror scripts etc.

It looks to me like the MirrorManager will notify the main site that the sync has completed. This is useful, but probably not to other mirror sites (or we may need specialized tools to perform the check). I could easily be mistaken here, though!
