(You don't need "rsync facilities" for jigdo.)

At the moment, I only know of two places to get the files. Apart from
us.cdimage, they're also at

*However*, some us.cdimage URLs are hardwired in the .jigdo files. You
have to download the .template and .jigdo files yourself and then give
the .jigdo filename as input to jigdo-lite. If it cannot pick up the
.template from the local dir, it'll try to download it from

All this info should also appear on the website at the next update

This situation isn't ideal. The plan is to eventually make *all*
regular FTP mirrors also mirror the jigdo files - yet another "list of
XYZ mirrors" on www/CD/ is one too many IMHO.
