Ok but how often does this matter? If I notice there's a newer version
which fixes something I suffer from I can still fallback to the main
server. Fortunately, this hasn't been necessary in quite a while. I
don't know whether you've informed the maintainer of the mirror.
A latency of days can and often will be a problem. Maybe it's a problem
they can fix.
