[OpenWrt-Devel] package source download site / 0 byte files at one mirror / buildbot failing

I have noticed lately a problem in buildbot faillogs: some packages fail due 
to invalid source archive at the central source download repo.




File format not recognized

When trying to look for the reasons, I have noticed that 
https://sources.lede-project.org/ contains some 0 byte files, which 
apparently leads into buildbot downloading that 0 byte file and then failing 
to recognise it. Somehow the download logic then stops. As the file was 
downloaded from a source site, there is no need to git re-clone, or anything 
like that.

The interesting part is that refreshing the page in browser now (a few 
minutes later) gives me:

So, the timestamps of both files changed and the missing file is complete at 
this mirror(?).

Are there several mirrored hosts at the address, and just one of them 
contains the 0 byte files?

I fixed manually last week the webui-aria2 Makefile by bumping version in 
Makefile, and now it builds ok, but there is likely some generic underlying 
reason for the 0 byte files on some of the source mirrors.

Ps. the same site contained several 0 byte .dl and .hash interrupted 
downloads that might be cleaned away.
