Re: figuring out do_custom_download.pl

Here's what I'm adding to the wiki, you may find it helpful.

'''NOTE''' Using a full mirror, or a mostly full mirror is best
practice.  You should only use a partial mirror if you absolutely must
(e.g. due to disk constraints) and realize that it is unsupported.

=== Create a mirror of the Debian archive for Apt ===
==== Option 1: Using debmirror ====

Frans Pop has created a wrapper script for this which is
[http://alioth.debian.org/~fjp/debmirror/ available from alioth].  A
README explains how to use it.  This is the preferred approach.

And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
