List/setup-run problems

It seems the cygwin server is still down,  so I don't know exactly when
this note may post -- but as failsafe -- I wanted to try to do a package
download from one of the mirror sites, but I can't get past the point
where setup tries to download the list of mirror sites.  It would be
a helpful "failover", if setup could used the last cached mirror list
if the live list isn't available -- or is there already someway to
override that setting.  Thanks! 

p.s. -- not to comment on cfg's admission:

Corinna, you seem to forget that we make building cygwin very hard so that
we are assured of job security.
   But, having the cygwin CVS source offline is a pretty hard-core
way of maintaining job security...:-)
