use the mirror account buster with password fsf/gnu

Bruce the problem is that i had to add debian as a guest group causing 
your login to become a chroot() to your home account.

Mainly because mirrors were complaining about the /debian/ type of 
problem if they all just tsuck to debian/ then there would not have been a 
problem. Anyway use buster if need be or after 6pm to 6am EST anonymous 
becomes a free for all at 1250 users....

The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
them is left as an exercise for the reader.  The question of the
existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
coefficient.  (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism
is beyond the scope of this article.)
