Thanks for the answer. That was a copy-paste I did at the time though, so
it was definitely not me who explicitely wrote it. If I remember, this one
was what gave me the $MIRRORLIST at the time. Anyway that was not this
mirror I was speaking about in my email just now because it apparently
disappeared from the source management software! In the list of specific
mirror, there is now only 1 remaining Japanese mirror: JAIST.
I just tried it again, all "Tainted *" mirror from JAIST are broken (curl
fail). For instance:
As I said the other day, if the only broken mirrors are the tainted ones
(all of them, and none of the rest), that may be on purpose. Shouldn't
someone contact JAIST?
