IT security policy for that part of the Apple network.  MPWA is  
supposed to be the solution by providing more maintainer  
functionality, one function being a way to upload distfiles to the  
mirror. But the MPWA work for GSoC didnt happen, so we're not any  
closer to that. Eventually, either MPWA will provide this, or I will  
separately, its just not high on my priority list.  I ended up setting  
up the mirror before MPWA since it was better than nothing.
