And that also is not a problem as it is up to us (TDF admins) to
decide when we make the update visible in the update-check. And for
obvious reasons this will only be done when the mirrors are synced,
i.e. when the build is officially announced.
So also the downloads are no problem (as they are not served by a
single server, but using our network of mirrors all over the world and
that is rather powerful).
