AFAIK everything can also be found on merkel though.

I doubt that that is the cause as I do remember considering that aspect 
when we made the change. For that reason my patches also still force a 
real by-hand for uploads of tasksel to stable.

/me looks on merkel...

Hmmm, mk-extra-overrides.sh has this:
for s in lenny sid; do
  for c in main contrib non-free; do
    echo "Making $opath/override.$s.extra.$c"

So it looks like the problem is that that script should have been updated 
to 'for s in squeeze sid; do' when lenny was released, but that this was 

Perhaps the releases to act on should not be hardcoded but instead taken 
from some configuration file?
