Um, that "update to jigdo" already exists in the form of v0.6.8, which
supports relative URLs... The problem is that Debian users who have
been tracking testing all along now have a version of jigdo-file which
does not support relative URLs. Of course they could upgrade, but it'd
be easier for everybody if they didn't have to.

This would work (with both jigdo-lite and jigdo-easy2win AFAIK), maybe
it's preferable to removing the pointer to jigdo-easy2win altogether.

I still think that too few people will actually use any of the
jigdo/template mirrors to justify making things more complicated for
everybody else, but you decide...

(<sigh> I just wish someone put together a jigdo-lite package for
