Thanks for running a mirror. I added the ipv4 address url. Our script
can't handle direct ipv6, so I haven't added it. If you have a domain
name that does both, I can add it into the list.

It's manual, and out of date means the mirror isn't serving up
"/project/trace/www-master.torproject.org" file. That's the only way we
detect how current the mirror likely is. Many mirrors are actually up
to date, but don't serve that file, so the script assumes it's out of
date or unavailable.

The script is here,

We used to do this, but when the website doesn't change for months,
people misunderstood the date to mean everything was out of date.
