to make a policy decision as to whether the profiles in general should

Is there still any objection against changing the download urls in the
blfs profile to use anduin?
Currently there are a lot of dead links in our url-lists (and apart from
those dead links, it also seems that ftp.gnome.org is down) and that
should really be fixed before we release the profile.
