Yeah I am going to forget about checking versions of apache on mirrors, i'll leave that upto
the admins to check.

I'll just concentrate on

A) Whether the mirror can be reached

B) Whether the mirror has updated content

Appologies to the other mirrors for starting such a shit fight

Thanks very much for checking on up-to-date mirrors.

With regard to the version question, I agree with the opinion of others 
on this list that we need to leave this up to the mirror admins.  If we 
were sure that they were running a vulnerable server, then I would 
indeed support removing them.  But there is no way we can actually tell 
that from the version number.

On the other hand, posting a list of old server versions every once in a 
while could do some good.  We might be able to guilt people into updating.
