The pages are regenerated at the top of each hour on each of the two
separate servers.  There can be a few seconds during the rsync update
(it uses rsync --delay-updates even for the local file copy) while the
new pages are copied into place.

But app3 /srv/tg/mirrormanager/mirrorlists isn't happy which is why
it's throwing the 404.  The yum mirrorlists are still running fine,
which makes me think it's just a failure of the one copy...

My Fedora ssh key is in a machine that's offline due to my move, so I
can't get onto app3 right now to fix it myself.  If someone can:

sudo su -
cd /srv/tg/mirrormanager
rm -rf mirrorlists
rm -f /tmp/mirrormanager-update-each-server.lock
sudo -u apache sh -c ./update-each-server

That will force a regeneration of the mirrorlists.  it will take about
5 minutes to run.

App4 could use that too, once app3 finishes...
