The ISP that hosted anduin tried to double their price (686, 165G disk,
10Mb connection). I moved to another ISP for 20% or the price (before
they tried to double). The new anduin is a lot faster, both CPU and
network, but is limited to 24G of space. osuosl is the master site for
LFS/BLFS files anyway (and has been for 10 years or so).
We do host a limited number of files on anduin where upstream does not
cooperate by creating stable releases.

We have a set of scripts that checks the packages every night. They are a
bit fragile due to upstream changing their websites (and similar) so they
are not 100% accurate, but I think they exceed 95% accuracy most of the time.
The results are also posted to the lfs-book and blfs-book mailing lists
