Well, that's just the way jigdo works, no problem. :)

You're right, everything would feel much cleaner if only a normal Debian
mirror were needed. Actually, one day I'd like there to be a "jigdo
fallback directory" on every Debian FTP server (and ideally also a
directory containing the .jigdo and .template files), so each mirror would
be self-contained WRT CD downloading.

BTW, if you look closely, the changed files do *not* include any packages, 
just "less important" stuff like documentation, READMEs etc.
