It shows.  What does the binary-package mirror have to do with spam
on the mailing lists?

"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty: power is ever 
stealing from the many to the few. The manna of popular liberty 
must be gathered each day, or it is rotten... The hand entrusted 
with power becomes, either from human depravity or esprit de 
corps, the necessary enemy of the people. Only by continual 
oversight can the democrat in office be prevented from hardening 
into a despot: only by unintermitted agitation can a people be 
kept sufficiently awake to principle not to let liberty be 
smothered in material prosperity... Never look, for an age when 
the people can be quiet and safe. At such times despotism, like 
a shrouding mist, steals over the mirror of Freedom"
Wendell Phillips
