I'm thinking more like hours.  From the last release I monitored:

We didn't hit 80% success rate until 3 and a half hours after the launch.
I think mdomsch made some good changes since this graph that will make the
outcome better, but I still think that initial launch isn't right.

Perhaps we should wait to send the announcement out until a certain % of
mirrors are ready?  We currently don't check that prior to announce.
