I meant /debian/dists/unstable but I am not so sure it will work with
There are several versions of dpkg-ftp, 1.4.9 in stable/unstable which
handles a single site which is a bugfix version of my last release
1.4.8. Since then I have improved it (but still has a couple of
problems) and passed this code on to Klee who produced 1.5.1 (in
experimental). This version is a big improvement (handles multiple
sites, only downloads Packages files if they have changed, big code
tidy up) and very nearly works - I fixed one small bug (the name of a
function was wrong checksite --> checkftp (I think)) but there is
another which is beyond my perl skills (it doesn't cd to the right
directory before downloading a file (or something like that)).
Another useful fix to it would be to avoid re-logging in to a ftp site
to get another packages file from the same site.
