It seems that some packages have recently gone missing from many
cygwin mirrors.  Specifically, I have noticed all the poppler and
openjpeg packages are gone, while still in the setup.ini and
dependencies of other packages.

setup.exe reports "HTTP status 404 fetching" and lists the URL to the
package, for example,
"http://cygwin.mirror.constant.com/x86_64/release/poppler/libpoppler66/libpoppler66-0.52.0-1.tar.xz";

Any help would be appreciated.

As posted earlier on the list:

I don't remember such a post on _this_ list.

sourceware.org is having some fallout from a hardware upgrade (see [1]).

Some things got restored from backup.  Work is ongoing.

Wouldn't it be easier to move the DNS to point sourceware.org to the IP
of sourceware2.org until the mess is fixed?  Once the repair is complete
the DNS can move back to the original IP.

sourceware2 is the pathname for a hot backup, not a hostname.

The reasons for not rolling back to that backup completely are outlined in the linked mail.
