As a major step towards the completion of this task, with commit 6d6886, the project's download script takes an optional 5th argument that contains a list of backup servers. If the download from the original server fails, it will try the backup servers.

But this task isn't yet complete, because we still need to allow the users to define their own backup servers outside of the Git history (maybe as a configuration option?)

Currently we have a single backup repository, but as more projects start to adapt this template, it is natural for them to have mirror repositories.

Therefore once task #15345 (Automatically using backup tarball repository) is completed, it may be good to have a file with URLs of backup repositories within each project where users can select which one to download a tarball from (if necessary).
