Hrm. This means we have unlocked mirrors for up to 6 hours before we
make the announcement. This could lead to a lot of confusion and
uncertainty about the isos and their validity, something we see whenever
a mirror leaks early.
That's certainly a downside. But I'd generally consider that far less
bad then an announcement going out and having so few mirrors actually be
ready for it.
Honestly I think we need a vastly different way of getting mirrors
bit flip aside from waiting on random cron jobs to pick up the change.
We do and are, but bit flipping sooner is an easy thing we can do now to
make a more smooth transition. I think this is one of those don't let the
perfect get in the way of the good situations.
