I really appreciate your continued vigilance with regard to this issue.
I have been busy with other tasks lately, and I haven't been able to
devote the attention needed to this issue.

That being said, I want to move forward to a better solution for our
mirroring infrastructure. We have mirrors without contact information,
and mirrors that have access, but don't appear to have any public

I am going to work with the other devs to come up with a plan to help
resolve our issues with the haphazard mirror infrastructure we have
had so far.

Thanks again for your work so far Gerhard.
