Running 1.3.27.

Why?  That's what it was running when I inherited it.  I could upgrade 
to 2.x probably without much headache; the machine doesn't do anything 
else but mirror, and doesn't need php/mod_perl/wha'eva.

If you guys at Centos need us to do that, though, give us a couple of 
days notice.
