Precisely. :)

Point of detail: not inadequite, simply not set up. I've moved my primary
server twice since I last updated the archive, and somewhere in there it
simply didn't get pulled across. I kept meaning to get around to it, but
with things in the state they were in, it didn't seem worth the effort.

Note that the machine running debian-bsd.lightbearer.com and the machine
building packages are quite separate entities, though they may become the
same in the future (for example, once Apache2 runs stably on an installed

I'll poke at putting debian-bsd.lightbearer.com back together, at least
as together as it ever was. :) This would be equally difficult (or not

doens't require getting access to quantz, so I'll do it there for now. :)
