Yeah it happened on Sunday, we got 'lucky' and zeus2 didn't make it in
on that sync cycle so it was saved

Problem was upstream with Centos's mirrors, we just happened to be the
unlucky mirror to get in right under the gun.  Luckily the zeus2 had a
copy and syncing from zeus2 -> zeus1 is a very fast operation.

It shouldn't happen again from my understanding, just the typical
occasional fluke.
