Default A lot of checksum failures on different mirrors

I tried to update -current today and got a lot of checksum failures on three different mirrors (2 in Britain and 1 in Germany). I tried ftp.Openbsd.org and that gave no errors.

I've had the occasional checksum failure in the past but it was always solved by trying a different mirror. Today's experience seems unusual.

This may happen if you are downloading files at the same time an updated snapshot is being distributed to the mirror.

That's interesting - makes sense.
