The mailman-2.1.2.tgz file is missing from distfiles!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge /usr/portage/net-mail/mailman/mailman-2.1.2.ebuild
d/l, merge it
not system related
All that this needs is for Mailman to be pushed to the mirror system...
why do you think this is a blocker ?
SRC_URI is valid.
this should be closed as invalid, since GENTOO_MIRRORS is just a feature
normaly every source file should be downloaded from the orginal site
this is a blocker because the *stable* ebuild of a major package is broken!
and about the mirrors, portage almost *never* downloads files from the original site. it's always the mirror system.
no this is NOT a blocker.
just set GENTOO_MIRRORS="" and portage downloads every source from its original site
if there's any mirror set, portage first tries to download the package from GENTOO_MIRRORS, after that from SRC_URI.
