Some additional notes:
If you use (very) old .jigdo/.template pair(s), and if passing regular debian/ 
and debian-nonUS/ mirrors to fetch the files from gives you "some packages 
could not be downloaded" error (because some packages have been dropped in 
favour of their new versions), then you can use the 
http://snapshot.debian.net as your debian/ and debian-non-US/ ones with date 
lines around that .jigdo/.template pair was created. 
For example, If: 
zgrep Info sid-sparc-1.jigdo
Info='Generated on Thu, 22 Jul 2004 01:38:00 +0200'

then your snapshot server lines you can pass to jigdo-lite to fetch the files 
from should be somewhere around this date, or 2-3 days after this one:

This sould go to the jigdo documentation at some point since it is very likely 
newcomers to jigdo not to guess of how to mount an uncompleted iso.tmp file 
if nesessary and how to find the dropped packages from the snapshot server.
