the downloads on both main servers, as documented in

seem broken to me. At least The X11R7.4 release is affected.

Many files cannot be downloaded (error 550), with both FTP and HTTP.
An example with FTP:

sh-3.1$ ftp -p xorg.freedesktop.org
Connected to xorg.freedesktop.org.
220 Welcome to the freedesktop.org FTP server.
331 Please specify the password.
230 Login successful.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

ftp> cd pub/xorg/X11R7.4/src/app
250 Directory successfully changed.

ftp> ls xrandr-1.2.3.tar.gz
227 Entering Passive Mode (131,252,210,176,172,226)
150 Here comes the directory listing.
lrwxrwxrwx    1 2746     800            68 Aug 29 20:10
xrandr-1.2.3.tar.gz ->
226 Directory send OK.

ftp> binary
200 Switching to Binary mode.
ftp> get xrandr-1.2.3.tar.gz
local: xrandr-1.2.3.tar.gz remote: xrandr-1.2.3.tar.gz
227 Entering Passive Mode (131,252,210,176,213,202)
550 Failed to open file.

The ->/srv/ symlinks seem broken.
