Hi Scott,

Hope all is well just picking this up and as Consortium Members we would
love to host the shibboleth files.

I was wondering if you could give me some statistics on the current usage
(i.e bandwidth requirements, space requirements etc) and I am sure we can
get some server space setup as a mirror.


Kindest Regards
