This service automatically and frequently scans through known mirrors and builds links to the latest versions of many different curl archives. This page is fine to bookmark!

Verification of PackagesThe script that "verifies" mirrored files only checks if they are present or not, to verify that you can download them.
To be really sure and safe that the contents of the files are correct, you should use the SHA-1 checksum, the MD5 checksum and GPG signature to verify downloads yourself!
