Dear Ryan,

What is the current situaton with mirorring distfiles and some other

semi-related issue is integration of xz library of course [and
renaming binaries for legacy systems :].)

It would be good to have a clear idea of what we can and cannot do
(what needs to be done by Ryan or in case he needs someone's help).
