This seems to be too frequent, most source distros (at least crux and gentoo) download the sources from ftp.easysw.com which is down a lot... In cases where the sources are available from the cups download page itself, why doesn't gentoo link directly? I can write an ebuild to fix this, I just don't like writing ebuilds unless the package just is not there and available.

The cups ebuilds use the easysw mirrors to download:

Code:
SRC_URI="mirror://easysw/${PN}/${MY_PV}/${MY_P}-source.tar.bz2"


Which use one of the following:

Code:
$ grep easysw /usr/portage/profiles/thirdpartymirrors
easysw          http://ftp.easysw.com/pub http://ftp2.easysw.com/pub http://ftp.funet.fi/pub/mirrors/ftp.easysw.com/pub http://ftp.rz.tu-bs.de/pub/mirror/ftp.easysw.com/ftp/pub


Although at the moment only the funet.fi one is working for me.

They are also mirrored on Gentoo mirrors. If you're having trouble downloading the sources it suggests your GENTOO_MIRRORS variable in make.conf is not set correctly.
