Kuiper seems to have stopped updating many days ago.  Copernicus
then updated for a while but hasn't as far as I can see updated
in at least three days.  It seems to have roughly 26% of R14 final
but it doesn't seem to be used by the redirector.

(I have not seen nightly builds being mirrored so I don't know
why is no longer updating.)

Consequently significant portions of each install are served
from the master server at lower speeds over the congested uplink.
I've seen downloads from the master server at reasonable speeds
but I've too often seen them crawling at 8KBps.

In short the new system seems to be reliable but slow for regular
installs and upgrades.  When R14 Final attracts more downloaders
I would expect further declines in download speeds.  Meanwhile
for those of us who need to create local partial mirrors the new
mirroring system is unusable until a complete and consistent
mirror forms.
