Not particularly. It's taken a while to get to a state where jigdo-lite works
reliably for me (as I believe I was the first person to actually try using
for real). So now it is working I was just wallowing in the satisfaction of
using something that works for a while before dicking with it and finding out
about some new tool :-)
I've been busy recently and haven't really been keeping up on jigdo-mirror. I
assumed it was for people keeping full CD mirrors, but no doubt it can be
configured to keep partial CD mirrors, which is indeed exactly what I am
doing, so I probably should be using it.

Hmm, that seems pretty good actually. This is indeed a rather better fix than
allowing mulitple files to jigdo-lite. It's into it's 3rd CD now and should
do the whole damn pile all by itself so long as I don't run out of disk

That would be handy.

OK, you're right. Only jigdo-file-cache.db is left. presumably there is a
good reason for this - remind me?
The only thing stopping jigdo from being totally perfect is the lack of docs.
No doubt the howto fixes a lot of this but someone getting round to some more
complete man-pages would be a good thing TM (and no I'm not volunteering)
