Some clarification. Our mirrors under pkgbuild.com domains shouldn't be
considered official or any better than other mirrors. We just happen to
maintain additional mirrors on these machines, nothing more. Donated
infrastructure can disappear tomorrow (or never) and is not considered
"core" for which we pay ourselves. Hosting any mirror there does not
show our endorsement.
