Dear TYPO3 users,
one part during the "replace the dinosaur" game (aka. typo3.org
relaunch), which was unfortunately forgotten was that the TER mirrors
cannot sync anymore.
The shorthand solution by modifying the mirrors.xml file  for which
we decided today does unfortunately not work out, as the (new) Extension
Manager keeps remembering the previous choice / url (? wasn't able to
figure out, how it really works). It seems like this functionality was
only made to add new mirrors, but not to remove any.
Therefore I suggest you to manually select the "TYPO3.org Main
Repository", which is the one, which *is* up to date.
To resolve this problem, I will start going the long way of
* setting up a server on ter.typo3.org, which becomes the new "Main
Repository" and syncs contents from typo3.org itself
* create account on that server for the mirror sponsors
* ask them to adjust their rsync host names (as they pull from us).
I expect the mirrors to come up to date during next week.
Sorry for the trouble!
