Thanks Brian. It seems to work: Not all mirrors have picked up the
change yet, but those that have and those which I checke are now
carrying the executable from

Thankfully I'm spared to argue that, but the executable was wrong at
all mirrors I checked, not only That would suggests
a common cause, very probably something at the master site (which is, isn't it?). Whatever -- I can't see me writing the
host masters of some 20 or 30 mirrors to point them to an error that
was probably upstream.

(Or did I somehow miss the significance of in that

But thankfully that is academic now: I expect the other mirrors to
pick up the changes within the next days and will perhaps actually
write to those that don't (esp. if they are those that I use :-),
because that would really indicate breakage in those mirrors.

PS: Brian, I've been living under the impression that we are under the
    rule not to include cleartext email addresses in quotes? Is that
    still so and would you, please, not burn my address further?

    (And yes I know I might not have stuck to that rule in all cases
     myself within the last 2 days, my apologies: I have to remove the
     addresses by hand and in my annoyance probably forgot once or
