OK, good to know.  Thanks for the fixes.

Actually, and somewhat fortunately, I didn't find any BitTorrent
trackers I like that worked automagically (without login and manual
upload of a .torrent) and with elinks/aria2c/lftp.  aria2c was happy
to ignore a non-existent tracker at localhost and do everything from
web seeds, however.  Of course, it should do equally well using a
metalink, and without the problem of exporting cryptography for
US-based users...

For now, I found the following changes in the GnuPG mirrors:		new (listed by FreeBSD)	new (listed by FreeBSD)			is incomplete		no longer mirrors gpg	stopped mirroring gpg in 2007		serves files, but no listings				mirrors website, not files
