Open ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases and save the page. 2. Wait for an hour. 3. Open ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases and save the page. 4. Compare the saved pages. Actual Results: The folder times changed while all other info is unchanged. Expected Results: All info should be unchanged.
I don't know a way to fix that... there's actually 4 different servers, I believe, that are behind a round-robin DNS, so you get a different server at random every time you hit it. It's kinda hard to make the upload happen on all of the servers at the same time... :)
Maybe the servers could add a comment containing their name, ID or whatever can be used to see the difference in the output of the LIST command.
The ftp mirror system has completely changed since this bug was filed. I can't imagine the change having fixed this though, and I don't know if it's worth fixing.
