Re: Fwd: SVN 1.7.0. alpha source code

We have asked them to use a different mirror, but several of them (in
my own testing) appear to have the same problem. For a user
attempting to get source code, it can be a frustrating experience,
which ultimately leads to admit defeat and walk away.

I guess my main point was: is there a way to only show mirrors which
are up-to-date? Alternatively, should non-up-to-date mirrors be
removed from the rotation? (They can hardly be considered "mirrors"
if they don't accurately reflect reality.)
