What happened to rawhide infrastructure (mirrors)?

I'm on the other coast -- I live in the Eastern USA, specifically the 
state of Maryland. My rawhide updates have been kind of flaky for a few 
days now, but today I got 25 updates that downloaded quickly thanks to 
yum-presto and the dawn of the deltaRPM epoch. I guess getting the 
deltas working correctly is slowing down at least some updates. I'm 
expecting huge waves of updates any day now, that work like the rainy 
weather (they never seem to go away...smile.)
