Shouldn't we provide a script to CD manufacturers so they can verify
the Packages files against what they actually have on their mirror?
I have noticed similar problems before, even on master. I think the
- verify md5sums
- verify that all the packages actually exist
- (?) warn about packages not in the Packages files
Just a thought...
