As mentioned in this thread... ftp urls appearently work and there are
ftp mirrors. Is this situation dire enough to demand a workaround with
a tempory application level fix? Is the request for testers to use ftp
mirrors for the time being beyond reason?

I would dare say the most dedicated testers... have switched to ftp
mirrors at this point.

-jef"though you have to take the phrase 'most dedicated' when talking
about rawhide users with a grain of salt.. they are more likely best
described as most tenacous if not most stubborn. I don't think i'd
call a bullrider who stays on the bull beyond the need time-limit for
that round of the rodeo competition 'most dedicated'"spaeta
