That means nothing; it is no more than the date on which you last
refreshed your local copy of the file, from the distributed FRS copy
(which is compressed). The important metric is the issue number
recorded within that file, which should be 2016073100.

This is correct.

That's not what I'm seeing:
| <software-distribution project="MinGW" home="http://www.mingw.org"
| <component class="dev">
| <requires eq="mingwrt-%-mingw32-dll.tar" />
| <release tarname="mingwrt-3.22-mingw32-dev.tar.xz" />
| <release tarname="mingwrt-3.22.1-mingw32-dev.tar.xz" />
(This is from the 2016-07-31 edition, which is NOT an old version; it
is the most recent version of this catalogue file).

Once again, this is correct. There's no reason for you to want to
download the original (broken) 3.22 versions, but mingw-get can still
access them, if you do try to force it; (they are still present, but
hidden from browsing by unprivileged users).

I can't fix what I can't perceive to be broken; this all WJFFM. If
you really believe you have identified a problem, you'll need to
provide us with a much more comprehensive problem description.
