Fedora is the only distro we mirror that regularly asks mirrors to do a
manual bitflip at release time, presumably because they've found that
demand is sufficiently high as to make it worthwhile.

As it's only them, adding an at job to do the bitflip isn't a big deal,
but if every distro did it, it would get annoying pretty quickly.  So I
think the hands-off method works great!
