Looking at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Commentary/Libraries, the "Repository locations" section, many packages, like ghc.git for example, don't have a git upstream repo. They only have the master in GHC. I'd suggest removing them from the 'git upstream'column.
Also some repos in the "git mirror" column look like
whereas others look like
The former doesn't look right, does it?
Also Cabal has a darcs master, but no darcs mirror? That's not according to the diagram.
Also in your Cabal example, do you have to wait overnight at two steps for the nightly cron job? That might mean two overnight waits? Or one?
I have the feeling that the darcs mirror is irrelevant to everyone except someone maintaining the git mirror, correct? That is, a punter need to interact with the darcs upstream, and with the git mirror -- but the darcs mirror is just part of the automation getting from darcs-upstream to git-mirror. Correct? If so, it would be worth saying so. (Probably is still worth recording where that darcs mirror is, I agree.)
