Hmm, perhaps the rsync mirrors aren't correcting their permissions. That
could be bad. (Jason may have a better idea about this)

Yes, this (and having symlinks from potato -> proposed-updates), is
an artifact of package pools: files don't disappear or get moved except
deliberately. Also, at the moment files aren't being removed from anywhere
at all on non-US, more as a safety matter than anything else.

You'll probably need to handle the extra files by hand with the cd
scripts, I'm not sure we can guarantee there won't be any more in future,
although James may have other ideas. (I'd certainly be more confident if
the CD scripts could handle it) The Packages file is authoritative though,
and there will at least be symlinks under dists/potato for everything.
