[Ros-release] Mirror of packages.ros.org

We're in the process of transitioning packages.ros.org hosting from Willow
to OSU OSL.  When we make that transition they do have a couple of
locations where they are mirrored.

For location specific mirrors we'd need someone who could donate a lot of
bandwidth and work with us to make sure that the mirrors stay current.

For mirroring with a fallback on a local network, I would recommend just
using squid.  We use it on our build machines which repeatedly redownload
packages and it makes a huge difference.
