We discovered the issue within 3 minutes of it occuring. It was a DNS
issue at our colo. If you'd like to donate space at another data center
so that it's not a SPOF we'd greatly appreciate it, we've been looking
for additional hosting space for a few items. Also the new mirrors
system is... well new. If you find that mirrors.fp.o isn't suiting your
needs I'd suggest a local mirror or picking a mirror close to you and
just using it. We'll continue to harden the new system.
