Definition

Mirrors: standalone servers with complete copy of npm registry

Proxies: proxy to the database (couchdb) of npm registry, if only the npm registry server fails but the db works

 HowTo

See this gist: https://gist.github.com/3331671

Mirrors

(+) means server is self updating (pulls newest stuff from offical registry when back online again) -- Compared to mirrors with only snapshots that can contain older versions of modules

 Proxies

Proxies are/should be self-updating per definition.

 DIY

Took my mirror offline, npm working again

Can you share a few details on what it takes to setup npm mirror?
couchdb, as it seems, and what else? How much space, bandwidth and other resources do you have to dedicate to this?
