I just copy:
Hello, everyone. I'm mailing a short list of people who had been mailing in asking about the status of the Aminet mirror.
At the current point, we've drug out what we had off of tape backup from the original Wuarchive, and are restoring it to the new machine right now. It'll probably take some time, and I do not have an ETA. You'll see it in it's usual location under FTP (/pub/aminet) when it's complete.
Go ahead and notify your community links that it will be coming back up, and also whomever runs the mirrors from Wuarchive that they ought to start working again.
Don't hesitate to email me directly for any additional configuration-type issues the community may have.
