I was trying to download the 7.33.0 source tarball, using one of the
mirrors to save Daniel's bandwidth. However, the first four mirrors I
tried seem to be defunct - three (, and redirect to domain-for-sale
pages and the other ( looks like a spammy wordpress
page. I checked the others (using "curl -I") and I believe the rest are
OK apart from, another domain-for-sale.

I'm not sure how the "verified" status of mirrors is implemented, but
maybe it is not filtering out 302's or text/html responses?
