That was probably:

Subject: 	Opt-out from mirroring resource-intensive projects
Date: 	20/04/12 19:37:04

By popular demand, we have implemented an opt-out option: mirror
operators that are unable to mirror Apache OpenOffice due to its disk or
bandwidth requirements may do so by changing the rsync source from:





The problem  is, rsync.apache.org::apache-dist  is binary empty
rsync -v rsync.apache.org::apache-dist/openoffice/4.0.0/binaries/en-GB/
receiving file list ... done
drwxrwxr-x          38 2013/07/18 19:21:45 .

sent 33 bytes  received 49 bytes  32.80 bytes/sec

Unless there was another thread with an updated decision that I was
unable to find.
