Great job, Robert!

1. Why do we need getlist.php and gethash.php on the super mirrors, 
other than for logging. Simply serving extkey_0.2.0.md5 as static files 
should be more efficient and easier to mirror. Same with extensions.xml 
and mirrorlist.xml ;)

2. Pathnames like /t/e/templavoila/0.3.0/templavoila_0.3.0.t3x : Why 
have the version information both in the path *and* the filename of the 
t3x. I see the use of /t/e/templavoila, but directories for versions 
with just one file in them are a waste of inodes...

3. I would update extensions.xml *after* an extension has been 
successfully uploaded and moved into the TER file structure...

4. As Julle wrote: extensions should be pulled from super mirrors, not 
master rep.

5. Please let us separate documentation completely from TER, not 
creating doc-only additional extensions. Generally, doc-only extensions 
are a bad idea, because they a) extend nothing, b) do not profit from 
the EM infrastructure in any way, c) bloat TER. I agree that existing 
docs should be pulled out of an upload, but then it should be forwarded 
to docs.typo3.org. Instead of having a soft reference to a extkey_doc 
extension, we should have a reference to
