Respectfully, I tirelessly manage the mirror at UH in Hawaii,
mirror.hosef.org, and I expect to eat my own cooking. I've been doing
network installs via http for years, and I cache locally on one of the
squid servers in my LAN. I had no reason to expect that a machine I
manage over bandwidth I moderately influence would stop serving a 5.4
directory because an errant rsync job deleted our entire 5.x tree. I
agree that this another reason to be wary of network installs, but I
would hardly chalk this one up to yet another example of why not. The
failure has nothing to do with the wiki.
