It is a necessary precaution for when you really use an outdated mirror
or a mirror that is blocking updates for you.
Yes, I know. But when the system was designed the update repo always
changed periodically, it would never be frozen. The situation is different
now: there is the non-oss repo, that seldom changes, and there is
evergreen, that has a frozen update repo plus an additional new update
Thus now we need some kind of override. For evergreen, a manual override,
perhaps a flag file that is downloaded as an update from the evergreen
repo. For non-oss, just a longer override, perhaps, or dummy updates.
That's up to you devs and packagers to design ;-)
Usability adjustments might however be necessary if users react the wrong way.
