Do you mean it lags continuously?  That wouldn't be a problem, we don't
depend on timely updates, just tie in the release points for easier
accounting/moving of patches.  (Unfortunately SVN tags aren't mirrored,
but I think I managed to find the Git commit for 2.0.0.)  Unless the
mirror actually misses some changes or fails to catch up eventually,
which would render it pretty much useless; is that what you mean?
