Good idea.

I finally managed to have the sense to read the typescript _before_
restarting stuff and thereby destroying the evidence, which tells me:

  Assertion failed: oldAreaEnd == start
  You have found a bug in jigdo-file. The generated .template file is
  very likely broken! To help me find the bug, please rerun the
  command as follows:
    [previous-command] --report=noprogress --debug >log 2>&1

so I'm now feeling a bit stupid.

I've upgraded jigdo-file to the latest version to see if that fixes
it, but at least we're getting the ISOs regardless this time

I doubt that the i386 and source will be done before mid-morning at
current rates, so you may overtake me completely.

Cheers, Phil.
