Steve noticed that several of the packages that claim to be non-US are
actually now in main, but are also still in the non-US archive, which is
what the fundamental problem is.

Erlang is one of these, and once it's sorted out we'll have a bit more
room on CD1, so there's no need for CD2_NONUS as it turns out.

I'll report these as bugs against non-us, and possibly do something
nasty to my mirror to sort it out in the meantime.

A quick comparison of the .deb's in both non-US and main, gives this
list of suspects:


This list may include packages that are in non-US & main for reasons
based on differences between package versions, but it should contain all
the problem packages, that are really in main, but still lingering in
non-US as well.

Cheers, Phil.
