There's only an official mirror provided by emrys' former employer...
That might be a problem, but I'm not the one who set that stuff up.

Every needed source was never guaranteed to be on a mirror.

The mirror list might be really old, especially for
They've changed their mirroring system, and our mirroring logic is not
exactly conducive to the way they run that stuff now.

I am unfortunately not familiar enough with the mirroring system, but I
do know that it mirrors effectively the official sourcemage artifacts,
and the sources are kind of a bonus.

I know that maintaining that source mirror is difficult at best, since
there's no particular good API or method to dump all the sources, I
wrote some utilities a long time ago, but they're stupidly slow.

Updating your SOURCEFORGE_URL by hand should resolve the problems with
smgl trying the old stupidity.
