Re: jigdo woody pre8 problem

Phil, please grep Contents out of the files passed to jigdo-file
during jigdo generation, or we'll have hundreds of messages like this
once woody is released! :)

The decision not to recognize the downloaded Contents-386.gz is
correct: jigdo checks the md5sum of the downloaded file, and because
that file has changed on the FTP servers, it must not be used for the
CD image.

jigdo-*lite* supports an additional mechanism to look in a "backup"
location if the file is not found on the primary selected server.
Unfortunately, jigdo-easy does not support that.

You might be able to fix your problem by entering the following
servers just for fetching the missing Contents file:


(Maybe change "pre9" to "pre8".) Please report whether that works -
apparently Iain had problems with it. :-/
