Mirrors pull, they don't push. Apart from allowing the mirror sites
access to the master file repository at cygwin.com, they're completely
out of the control of anyone at Redhat or on the Cygwin team.
My personal recommendation is to pick a single mirror (based on
reliability!) and then exercise patience. I use the Argonne mirror.
They're not the most prompt to update, but they're pretty reliable.

I've only been on the list for a short time. I have noticed that some mirrors
are more quickly updated than others. Which mirrors will most likely contain
the updates most quickly? Generally after I receive an update notice on the
announce list I have to wait for a day or two before I see it. Is that just
the way it is? or are there some mirrors that will have the updates
