Absolute template URLs in official .jigdo files
every now and then, there are complaints from people who mirror the
official .jigdo/.template files: The .jigdo files contain absolute
.template URLs, so the templates are always fetched from us.cdimage, which
creates a single point of failure and defeats the purpose of mirroring the
Could this be changed to use relative URLs for future releases?
One reason for the absolute URLs was that the version of jigdo-lite in
woody didn't allow them. This is no longer true as of 3.0r2 - jigdo-file
0.6.5-2 supports them.
I think the other reason is that Phil doesn't want people to download the
templates from non-us.cdimage, just from us.cdimage. Phil, maybe you could
solve this issue on your side by using HTTP redirects?
