Hi all,

What's the procedure for removing out of date cran mirrors?  I've just
discovered the fantastic http://cran.r-project.org/mirmon_report.html,
but there 4 mirrors that have not been updated in over a month, and
quite a few others that have a chequered past.  Given that there are
many additional mirrors available, and the poor user experience if a
bad mirror is selected, perhaps these poorly functioning mirrors could
be removed from the list?
