That's what happened :-(

I need a filesystem structure like on the mirrors with at least all
needed files in right place.

Is there any way to give a local structure a higher priority in
selecting the locations for the [Parts] section? I thought of mounting
the image, but to get the files from alpha.gnu.org in a separate tree
(as these are just some hundred packages, compared to a complete Debian
mirror acceptable for me). Then jigdo-file should take the files which
can be found in the alpha tree and label it (e.g. Alpha) even if the
file exists in the mounted-image-tree. I think this could solve the
This could work with a filtered files list, so duplicate files would be
taken from the alpha tree.

But that would not solve the "moving targets" problem.

I have to check that. I tested the jigdo file with 0.6.6. template was
given as filename, hurd-H4-CD1.template, but jigdo-lite tried to fetch
http://hurd-H4-CD1.template ...
