No. The reality is simply that the 2.4.4 is not overwritten because
ftp.freepascal.org was retracted as not being able to cope with the load.

What is wrong is the index listing ftp.freepascal.org.

There was a cache of mirrors that is not updated properly, thus still
linking to the old (no longer valid) site.

That is strange, since this specific issue was caused by something decided
in the week before the 2.6.0 release.
