The site which implements the described mechanism is indeed only
I've checked qmail, eclipse and python sites.
python.planetmirror.com is no longer a mirror for python packages.
Downloads from qmail and eclipse work fine (except that many eclipse
ports have wrong paths (which is being reported by portsurvey)).
This has been checked by manually downloading one distfile from each
server with fetch, saving the file in distfiles directory and then doing
a make checksum.
So the conclusion is that only http://public.planetmirror.com and
http://downloads.planetmirror.com addresses pose a problem.
