Simba was created to be _the_ mirroring tool, to get more control
over the mirrored content and (most importantly) more control over
the reports you can generate using the mirrored content data.
Using Simba, you can:
+   Create web pages with mirrors status
+   Create web pages with mirror details
+   Generate RSS feeds
+   Generate Google sitemaps
+   Generate rsync configuration files
+   ... and more
Simba is extensible and has a dynamic plugin system. If you have some knowledge
of perl, you can write your own plugins and extend Simba as you wish.
