The 1.0 Packages file hasn't been updated since the tree was moved,
because it is generated by my crontab and I don't seem to be in the
appropriate group on ftp.debian.org.

If you hold off for a bit this will get sorted out when the ftp site
organisation is organised.

The project directory shouldn't have one - it's not an ordinary
distribution tree, and isn't intended for automatic processing.
