Re: I have available missing older files for Debian archive (debian-30r0-i386 verified; also unverified: debian-21r0-i386-binary-1)

I'd suggest:
use the canonical site name:
note the files in:
(that file may be going away soon - just created it earlier today - but
it does presently list relevant files missing from the debian archive,
I may also dedupe it further and remove those available within
retrieve those specific files listed in
from under:
retrieve and save:
One should then - along with what's already in the debian archives, have all
the data needed to populate the files that are missing from the debian
archives (at least for - debian-30r0-i386) with those missing files, added,
one then has everything needed to construct and validate the files:
And optionally if desired and it's not otherwise available (I don't have
the files to validate it, but I'd be interested if anyone has those),
one may wish to snag copy of:

I'll be thinning it out, though, to only what's
needed to restore/recreate the bits that are missing from the debian
archives and that can't also be restored from other location(s)
available on-line, notably:
And will probably eventually stop hosting the data (e.g. like maybe
about 90 days from now).  Have had it up and available for years - that
ought be quite long enough.


Would it be helpful if I grabbed the ISOs at http://www.mpaoli.net/debian/ISOs/
(I don't have time to sort out all the jigdo steps, as I would just
stuff them onto
my home NAS server for now.)

I can make them available later when Steve or someone else on the Debian-cd
team has more time.

Did you manage to grab these yet for the Debian archive?  I still have

evidence that they've been retrieved (at least beyond the README file).

Anyway, the basic "how to" and what's available, etc., remains at:

Let me know sometime.

Hi Michael,

I've been completely swamped in the last few weeks with several
conferences to attend, and one to organise. However, that doesn't
excuse my being rude in not replying to your previous emails. :-(
Please accept my sincere apologies for not getting back to you lately.

I *have* now downloaded the files you've provided - you'll probably
have seen log entries showing downloads from free.hands.com, aka
ftp.uk.debian.org. I'll start working through those files shortly, to
fill in whatever gaps I can in the snapshots we're hosting.

Thanks *very* much for your help!
