>             Fix For: InstalApacheFlex 1.0
> This task describes the procedure for using a randomly selected Apache mirror to download
Apache Flex binaries.
> When the application needs to download a binary from the Apache Flex project, it makes
makes a request to the 'single mirror url' CGI that lives in the root of the project site.
This CGI returns the URL of a randomly selected Apache mirror, located near the user's geographical
location. The CGI is a simple wrapper around the standard mirror selection functionality provided
by apache.org. Both the Install Apache Flex application and the badge utility that goes with
it use this functionality, making sure that binaries are (almost) never downloaded directly
from apache.org servers.
