You seem to be assuming that there is or will be something on that ftp
site that is interresting. What would that be? I don't miss alot of
stuff and if so, I somehow doubt that the missing bits would live on
an atmel tfp-server.

I ask you to fix the mirror-selection to reflect that a vendor may
provide additional patches on their site for their specific products for
a short period of time -- i.e. until the fixes are applied to upstream
sources -- but _not_ to pollute the rest.

Thank you.
