IMHO what should have happened is the src be up on CentOS server but not 
sent to the mirrors until the massive bandwidth has died down.

Maybe the mirrors could get an html file pointing to the CentOS 
directory until they get the src.rpm's.

But I'm pretty good at being an armchair quarterback - maybe next release.

An alternative might be to tease the community by syncing the src.rpm's 
a week before the release :D ;)
