Re: 13.0 amd64 packages are out-of-date compared to 13.0 i386

I have previously confirmed with one of the cluster admins that a build of
that size can take over 4 days to distribute to all mirrors and no mirror
starts distributing updated packages until all mirrors are either in sync
of have been pulled from the list of active mirrors if there is a problem
with one. It's a really huge amount of data and the places that havd
mirrors on slow links are the ones that rally need to load packages form a
fairly local mirror.
