As a quick update on the mirroring we have several new mirrors listed. I
have recently cleared listed mirrors which were out of date by more than a
year. There are four mirrors fully functional.  Two (Japan and Sao Paulo)
appear to be up to date but is not reporting correctly. (Documentation of
how to fix this at:

There are several more mirrors listed which have not been updated, however
they do not have listed contact information. (Freiburg, Barcelona,
Philadelphia, Austin)  If you are the maintainer please add your contact
info to the wiki page and look at updating the syncronization method.

We'd like to clean up the systems so that all the listed mirrors will have
status reporting for easier visibility to users.
