strange mirror problems
I let run mirror. Suddenly it told me it got 350 meg over night. Damn..
mirror -n -pDebian-slink says (for example) the following:
get file main/binary-all/x11/xbooks_126.96.36.199a-2.deb as main/binary-all/x11/xbooks_188.8.131.52a-2.deb (17400584)
get file main/binary-all/x11/big-cursor_1.4-1.deb as main/binary-all/x11/big-cursor_1.4-1.deb (8762)
Now. Let's have a look at the actual files:
/debian/dists/slink/main/binary-all/x11 # ls -l xbooks_184.108.40.206a-2.deb
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 17400584 Aug 24 13:53 xbooks_220.127.116.11a-2.deb
/debian/dists/slink/main/binary-all/x11 # ls -l big-cursor_1.4-1.deb
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 8762 Jul 10 13:52 big-cursor_1.4-1.deb
The size is the same. The date presumably makes mirror fetch them all.
What have I done? I was mirroring from ftp.de.debian.org lately...

*any* ideas? It seems mirror is refetching the whole fscking archive. This
is too darn expensive... *SIGH*
