Rough checking shows at least 3 mirrors leaking, which is typical.  I've 
contacted one mirror admin that promptly took his mirror off-line to
address it (at least it is no longer responding).

There is nothing that can be done to "plug" leaks except

1) contact the admins and have them fix it
2) remove the mirrors from the mirrorlist and remove their acls.

Frankly, not that my vote counts, I'm all for #2.  The issue can be
revisited a few days after release once everything is calm again.

There are men -- now in power in this country -- who do not respect
dissent, who cannot cope with turmoil, and who believe that the people of
America are ready to support repression as long as it is done with a quiet
voice and a business suit.
