CTM deltas missing from ftp mirrors

For some reason, ftp-master.freebsd.org seems to have stopped collecting 
them since Dec 4.  Hence no mirror will be up to date.

They are available at ftp://ftp.vmunix.org, which rsyncs them from the 
source seperately.

I hope that the owner of ftp-master will communicate with me so that we 
can put this right.  (I am looking at my own hosts-allow files and my 
messages file to see if it is my fault.  So far I haven't found 
anything, but I'll keep looking.)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
