Good news!
I switched temporarily to rsync://fr2.rpmfind.net but now find that it 
is also now empty. It was working OK for most of the day.

I lost some files from my personal mirror when rsync://fr2.rpmfind.net 
was wiped, but killed rsync just in time.

Using --delete-after it's not easy to avoid this happening, but a safety 
net is needed to stop all downstream mirrors following suit when a 
disaster happens.

I will set --max-delete=500 locally in future.

Any better ideas?
