Thank you.  I in fact did look for any contacts that might be more related to 
mirror admins than this mailing list, but no avail.  Does it mean that I have 
to continue report such issues here?

Anyway, no need to wait for an occasion, here is another one:


Error is the same:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
gzip: i92s6sqzlps5wasx09wv3lckn2lj3dm7-perl-5.24.0: invalid compressed 
data--format violated
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This affect yesterday’s 0.13.0 release.

Yet, as much as is slow, it could be faster to download 
the substitutes from there, where they are *not* corrupted (at least these two).
