I've just had a quick look at the download mirror sites:

Firenze: Netscape is unable to locate the server
Brasil: up to date last changes Apr '99, README from v5r7
Russian site: connection refused, maybe busy
Denver: no response, timed out
Poland: home page says latest release 10r5, download link points back
German sites: both up to date
UK: latest release 7r6
Australia: no response, timed out

I'm not sure what conclusion to draw from this. The fact that I
couldn't connect to Russia, Denver or Australia might mean that those
sites aren't really there, or it might mean that the sites are fine and
are serving a useful purpose because the people in those places would
have equal difficulty connecting to a site in northwest Europe. (I'm in
Scotland.) Maybe some list subscribers in Russia, the US and Australia
can say whether they are depending on those sites.
