A general suggestion:

Also distribute nnouncements via mirrors. Tell people that mirrors useable  
are those from the official list that do carry the announcement, thus  
proving that they aren't stale.

It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing.

Oh yeah, and possibly include a file "LAST_MIRRORED" on master that gets  
rewritten with the current time stamp every five minutes or so, so we can  
see which version of master the mirror has.

Also not perfect (it's only one point in the mirror run), but better than  
nothing.
