We currently have 3 "archives":
-pure64: This is unstable with gcc-3.3
-sarge: This is testing/sarge with gcc-3.3
-gcc-3.4: This is unstable with gcc-3.4

unstable and testing (etch) really should be moving to the
official mirrors so I don't think we'll keep providing those on
alioth.  We will of course do until everything is on the official

We will atleast have a released version of the sarge repository,
with updates if there are, and security updates.

We haven't actually been told that we'll get on the official
mirrors after sarge's release, but we do believe so.
