[Exherbo-dev] source files not available upstream will now automatically be fetched from Exherbo mirrors

Previously the Exherbo mirrors where named "exherbo" in Arbors mirror
configuration. This meant that paludis would not automatically fall
back to these mirrors as it tries to use a mirror named as the master
repository, in this case "arbor".

We have now fixed this, which means people can stop doing things like
having " * http://distfiles.exherbo.org/distfiles/" in
/etc/paludis/mirrors.conf resulting in _everything_ being fetched from
our mirror. See: http://paludis.pioto.org/configuration/mirrors.html

Just to remind you, we have a master mirror:
http://distfiles.exherbo.org/distfiles/ located in Europe (Germany)
and we have a mirror in the US: http://exherbo.ams.sunysb.edu/
