I've been pulling from mirror.its.uidaho.edu in general anyway; I only
pull directly from msync around release times or when I suspect
something's not quite right.  We're close enough that our campuses
have a direct gig fiber link, and they give me no bandwidth
restrictions, so I can download at 50MB/s+.

There's also a chance I'll be re-authorized, as my mirror server has
been powered down at IT's request, and the campus network situation is
not improving.  Makes it real hard to keep blaming my mirror....

The timing is bad, though...I'd love to be helping with the 5.6 release load.

If they re-approve, I'll wait for things to settle down some, and
start re-adding, if you're still willing.
