IIT Chennai / Madras is an option, IIT Mumbai is another (and they do 
have an internal mirror about which nothing much gets talked about). 
There are a lot of private institutes which seem to be taking a deep 
interest in producing Free / Open Source Software - would be nice to 
start getting folks from there on this list.

An internal mirror is a good thing to begin with. The underlying idea 
over here is to figure out how to get the os bits to people primarily to 
use and as an added benefit to contribute.

So, for example, I know of a person at Madhyamgram who syncs repos 
nearly daily and provides installation and related support to a lot of 
students nearby.
