Which mirror are you using for the Packman repository ?

As rlee pointed out, faac support has indeed been removed from ffmpeg,
but the faac/libfaac packages are still built and published.

I just checked on our primary server and the RPM packages are there

Smells like something is fishy with the mirror (or the repository
