dotsrc is pretty fast

I was just worried in relation to some of the comments on tex.stackexchange.com yesterday where some users endet up getting MacTeX 2012 because of Old mirrors.

Just wanted confirmation that the MacTeX dated May 30 IS MacTeX 2013

looks like it to me, but http://www.ctan.org/mirrors/mirmon shows that
dotsrc is a mere 2 hours old at the time of typing...
