As this is the mirror that we currently sync from, and it's been down for 3 days (for rsync) - I'll confirm that it is, in fact, down for rsync.

Ah, OK, apologies - I only checked HTTP last night, as I received your mail as I was about to head out.
It seems the rsync daemon had stopped for some reason; I've started it back up, and will be looking in to why it stopped, and more importantly why Nagios didn't catch it for me (I thought rsync on that box was being monitored, but presumably not, since I had to find out by a report from you, rather than automated alerts...)
Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for letting me know about the problems you were seeing.
