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.
