Thanks, yes, the mirror is obviously out of date, I can tell, but why
does download.sugarlabs.org persist in suggesting it to (a) my IP in
Australia, and (b) localhost, itself?!
I've also changed the code I'm using to rely on disk cache
and copied the files from the filesystem on download.sugarlabs.org.
But still, I shouldn't have to do that.
I'd call up my friends at mirror at aarnet to fix their mirror, but if I
do that the problem will go away without Bernie fixing the redirect. ;-)
