Hey, cut them some slack -- AFAICT, we just left cdimage.d.o lingering there
with the old images for months, and nobody informed the less involved of the
mirror admins about any changes. Heck, just a few weeks ago I mentioned some

I know for a fact that mirror admins are a relatively clueless bunch, but I
also know that they can be educated given enough effort.
