Yes, the R14 update is probably backed up behind the nightlies.  Problem
is, if I disable the nightly mirror will purge all of
the nightly files, causing the TDE servers to re-upload over 50 GB of data
(this is something I cannot afford to do).

I have had a couple of offers in the past for hosting a primary mirror
with push rsync; while I have been hesitant to make a
secondary mirror due to its high availability and bandwidth I may have to
do this anyway.  Any changes would not occur until after R14 release and
full sync, so this decision will be delayed for now
