Mirrors very slow?

Generally speaking, there's nothing much Cygwin can do about mirrors.
However, there is a "check-mirrors" script that runs every night.  It
checks a list of "putative mirrors" and those that are out of date
don't make it to the "verified" mirrors list, which you can read at
<>, and which is checked by setup.exe
when you run it.

If mirrors are *very* out of date, but still make it to the verified
list, there might be a problem with the check-mirrors script.

I don't think check-mirrors is so strict that it will de-list mirrors
which are just a couple of days behind.  You just have to hunt around
to find one that works well for you, if you need the very latest
