where does one get the, more or less, master images? or where to
get the MD5Sums? cdimage.debian.org? at least i couldn't find
direct instructions about this issue on cdimage.d.o.

btw. just reading http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#verify, clicking
on the link of the master site doesn't reveal 3.x md5sums.

btw. I also looked at http://www.debian.org/CD/mirroring/ ...
doesn't answer my question as well. is there a link from the main
cdimage site to this page? because i only found this through the

oh, it's mentioned on the mirroring url from above that the
master site is indeed cdimage.d.o but well but only with 2.2r7
images nothing about 3.x, but well, is debcdmirror really the
preferred way? because I'ld much rather use rsync and not the
pseudokit to get the images to be honest.

how is the normal jigdo working? getting its jigdo/template
files? from a specified rsync location? or http or ftp? if so, is
there a naming convention?

i know this is a horribly old mail, but somehow this isn't
correct, they still carry 2.2_rev7. was there another mail to the
mirror maintainers because i can't see another one about this ...

so long

PS: i replied as i read the mail, so a bit inconsistent probably
... sorry about that.
