I have regular connectivity issues.

There are other people in the project. I'm sorry, but I really can't do
everything.

Yes, I'm aware of that, it's just that I can't reasonably put that
downloadable file up anywhere myself. Anyway, I asked around on irc and
Steve Frost has put some up as:

	http://people.debian.org/~sfrost/basedebs_3.0_alpha.tar
	http://people.debian.org/~sfrost/basedebs_3.0_i386.tar
	http://people.debian.org/~sfrost/basedebs_3.0_powerpc.tar

Which should be enough to get you started.

Cheers,
