Umm... may be I mis-interpreted the contents of MD5SUMS and SHA1SUMS as
"There are all of these ISO files here, which have these sums
values that should be checked after these ISOs downloaded, before
they get burned into CD/DVD/BD".
So it might be my ignorant, but should there be something such as
README file explain to those who looking for ISO files from
debian-cd mirrors that they won't see those ISOs here, and what
they should do to if they really want to get one.
May be a README file at top level of debian-cd/?
