That was the plan, they get it from ftp-master I believe.

Yes. We thought that's a better way to get them, it's more functional
and doesn't load up the mirror system with tons of small files that
change fairly often.
This is probably still open to discussion if it's a big problem.
Basically our theory was that the stuff on the FTP site had been
useful before CVSweb came along but now that it's available the
load of carrying the branches/ stuff through the mirror system
isn't worth it. If the theory is wrong we might be able to come
up with some sort of alternative.
