[mirror] Recursive Loop with 42.3 ISO Changes Directory

I have been trying to get a local sync of 42.3. I am having problems
with the ISO directory. It has a "Changes" directory that on has text files. On all of the mirrors, that I
have checked and that have the iso directory, the "Changes" directory
is a link to the current directory.

I am behind a proxy which I do not control, so I can not use rsync.
The method I use to sync each new distro is use lftp to build a file
and directory listing then use aria2c to fetch using the meta4 files

Can someone find out if the problem is on the openSUSE end or with how
mirrors are syncing their copy? Thank you.
