Click the "Slackware" tab at the top of the display.

My guess is that it is an issue within the Oregon State University website, since http://ftp.slackware.com resolves to http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/.

yup, slackware.osuosl.org has the same IP as ftp.slackware.com
Code:
dig slackware.osuosl.org

;; global options: +cmd

I guess it's another way to reduce the load of the main Slackware site and they host the FTP site to OSUOSL
