It is all one server.  However: there's not a lot of ftp traffic,
and I suspect most of that is for the mirrors.  I'll have to research
that, and contact mirroring sites, suggesting that they update to point
to my site.

On my own site, I see that web traffic is up (I hadn't looked for
quite a while, it's doubled over the past year years), but ftp traffic
is negligible (according to the logs, anyway).  I used to see a fair
amount of traffic from packagers, getting patches.  Now I guess they
just download the current tarball and dump it in git...

I scripted most of the uploads for my site over the past few years,
and will fit the consolidated lynx page into that scheme.  That means
that the page will be pared down
to eliminate the long (generated) list of patches (people who want old
patches _will_ have to go to the ftp area, or its web-mirror).
