Sourceforge use triggered push mirroring and their own rsync scripts to
distribute content to mirrors, they also largely obscure the underlying
directory structure on each mirror with HTTP redirects/rewrites and
such, so it's not really intended to be read directly via rsync or ftp
for example. 

Generally, permissions are set for a reason so we don't interfere with
their mirror process unless they report any issues to us. Although it is
possible that the unreadable directories were left there in error, so
I'll check with the sourceforge admins and get back to you.
