As you've probably noticed, our Sourceforge mirrors are old and musty. :-)
Unfortunately, after a discussion with Sourceforge's technical
support, it appears that it will be nontrivial to update our mirror
set to allow setting a mirror in advance. However, I've tested out
their currentprimary sourceforge download URL path,
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/projects/<path to project file>
which automatically redirects to one of their mirrors. The
redirection appears to work under all of our download methods.
Based on my results, I've updated the sourceforge mirror list in HEAD
to have http://downloads.sourceforge.net/projects/ as the new primary
mirror site. I'd appreciate it if people who are using HEAD fink
would update it and set their Sourceforge mirror to this new primary
mirror and let me know if there are any problems. If not, I'll make a
fink-mirrors release (possibly even discontinuing the old mirrors).
