Which one is obsolete now ? And why are you resposible ?

What kind of responsibility do you have in mind ? 
It's nothing more than like someone sets up an daily wget -R on some
ftp server and tells the world where to reach this mirror.

Probably not. But does it hurt ?

BTW: I didn't know that there's already another mirror. 
While reading the git docs I just came around that mirroring service
and tried it out. Nothing more.

If you don't have any use for the new mirror, just ignore it.
Probably it will timeout after a while if nobody uses it.

No, not for me - I don't have the slightest intent do control it.
Actually, there is nothing to control - the mirrors are done 100%

Please don't, just because of that dumb mirror.
It has nothing to do with your contributions.
