Hi Erik,

I was doing my first full release of ant. I was just concerned that some 
people might try starting their download right after the announcement. I 
found out that the  mirroring took place within the next 8 or 9 hours 
after the actual release. I will indicate 
http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi next time I do a release,
Cheers,
Antoine
