A very fair question...

The server that held jcifs.samba.org was hosted at an excellent site with
very good connectivity.  The person who offered the site left the company,
however, and although they were nice folks when the disk went crash they
opted not to continue hosting us.  They didn't have anyone left on staff
willing to take ownership.

At the University of Minnesota, where I work, the CS department is currently
hosting several OpenSource mirror.  They even have a SourceForge mirror. 
They've offered to do a Samba/jCIFS mirror, and I'm planning on taking them
up on it.  It will be a while, though, as I'm swamped.

In the mean time, jcifs.samba.org is on one of the other Samba mirrors and
Mike is working out syncing with another Samba Team person.  Should be good
to go soon.
