[CentOS-mirror] Rsync Issues

So, I'm having a problem over the past few days with getting 5.4 onto the
Clarkson mirror for release.

In the past, I've always synced with mirrors.rit.edu for CentOS since it was
always reliable, it was the closest mirror to Clarkson, and because I'm
unable to pull CentOS from the master rsync pool due to bandwidth
limitations.  Recently, I've changed my rsync to a private mirror at the
University of Utah because David Richardson set it up to allow our mirror
access to download new releases prior to the official release date.  The
issue that has arisen since 5.4 started to be pushed out is that my mirror
has downloaded and deleted it 3 times so far and I'm trying to avoid it
doing so again.  I even changed back to mirrors.rit.edu at one point but
noticed that RIT was experiencing the same issue of the 5.4 directory being
deleted.  As of right now, it looks like the Utah mirror (
mirror.chpc.utah.edu) is experiencing the same issue again since all of the
ISOs are missing, even though they were there last night.

Has anyone else seen this occur on their mirrors over the last few days?
Can someone verify that all of the servers in the master pool have 5.4 on
them correctly?  I'd like to have us ready for the official release but at
the moment I've killed my updates until I know 5.4 won't be deleted off our
mirror again.  Also, can I be added to the ACL for CentOS-incdvd?  I'd like
to be able to at least be able to run some dry runs against it.
