Yesterday when we started syncing AOO 3.4.1 files, the stable files for
3.4.0 were unexpectedly re-copied due to them having a different timestamp
than what we had for the files (we're not sure why the timestamp
differed). This
re-copy caused us to mark the files as unavailable on our mirrors (since
they are treated as new files).

During this time we served up some redirects to MirrorBrain, a backup
mechanism we crafted earlier to push complete serving failures for OOo 3.3
back to MirrorBrain (actually never used until today). Since 3.4 files were
not available on MirrorBrain - due to us not having populated the 3.4.0
release on MirrorBrain - redirected downloads didn't get served eventually.

We removed this code, and instead display an error page when this condition
arises, so that end-users will be asked to report to SourceForge directly.
For future releases we'll exclude prior AOO releases when copying
new-release files so we don't need to worry about tweaked timestamps. We
will take additional measures to monitor selected files to confirm they are
serving properly (with pager notification upon fault).

Again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Roberto
