Ok .. but does this make sence, to have dists/woody/Release Components
but in dists/woody/binary-i386/Release Component?

I saw several woody installations, which stops at the error: Malformed
Release file.....
I think, this is a big problem, it makes woody uninstallable for me ....
Does anyone has a clue, where the problem might?
