Hi Nick,

Thanks for digging into this.  FWIW, the flex-sdk download.xml ant script
currently uses closer.cgi.  The FlexJS install script uses
http://www.apache.org/dyn/mirrors/mirrors.cgi.  If infra has shut off
mirrors.cgi then we have more work to do, although we already hit
mirrors.cgi with an “asjson” parameter as opposed to the “as_json”
parameter Infra is now suggesting.  Is Infra blocking the old asjson

Before we put everything on hold to try to create another Installer
release, is there any way we can redirect our single-mirror-url.cgi to
some other URL?  I don’t know if the .htaccess files kick in first, or if
we can fix the installer by changing the sdk-installer-config-4.0.xml to
point to a single-mirror-url.lua or something like that.  AFAICT, the
installer picks up the URL of single-mirror-url.cgi from the
sdk-installer-config-4.0.xml file.
