Where do you get those sizes from? My ftp and rsync clients shows
612171776 for debian-30r0-i386-binary-1.iso on those mirrors.

lftp ftp.funet.fi:/pub/Linux/mirrors/debian-cdimage/3.0_r0/i386> ls debian-30r0-i386-binary-1.iso
-rw-r--r--   1 mirror    mirror     612171776 Jul 20 16:31 debian-30r0-i386-binary-1.iso

This is also the size of the downloaded file, which has a correct md5sum.

I also noticed that I have this structure:

Should I remove the "images" dir? I am fairly certain that it ended up
there during the discussions on jigdo-mirror and a standard structure for
the release, but since there is no official master site, I can't be sure.

Other mirrors seems to not have the "images" dir.
