Default ftp3.usa.openbsd.org no longer on the mirrors list

I checked again today and ftp3.usa.OpenBSD..., just up the road in Boulder, Colorado, has still not returned to the mirrors list after disappearing a couple weeks ago. All the mirrors are pretty quick but ftp3.usa made it pretty easy to pick the "geographically closest mirror" for my OpenBSD fix.

Anybody have any unverified rumors concerning its disappearance?

I don't see it listed here: https://www.openbsd.org/ftp.html
So I am inclined to think it no longer exists, on the list, not sure,.... I am able to connect to it though,
Index of ftp://ftp3.usa.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/

Up to higher level directory
So I have no idea as to why it is not on the list. Maybe ask here: mirrors-discuss@openbsd.org ?
=== edit ===
I just installed a package using the above url, so it certainly does work, and exists.

There was some talk about ftp3 a little while back. Maybe on IRC.

But, I guess it ended up getting consumed by openbsd.se.rit.edu which is listed as ftp.usa.openbsd.org
