Summary0007891: NL Kali Mirror Is "Always" Out of Sync

As discussed on Kali Discord, the Kali mirror in NL ( is always out of sync for the past 3 weeks.

A snippet from my Gitlab CI/CD for Kali i3-gaps:

Reading package lists...
E: Failed to fetch File has unexpected size (42413639 != 42469362). Mirror sync in progress? [IP: 80]

Given the frequency of this issue, I personally believe needs to be removed as a mirror or replaced with an alternative mirror.
