dpkg-ftp for testing (Was: Preparing

OK, I seem to have got a working package with most things in.  It
still misses testing for those firewalls refusing MDTM, but all
remaining features discussed (and more) seem to be here.

It should show in ~dirson on master within minutes. If you're behind a
firewall, be sure do have a backup 1.4.9, or be prepared to ftp one by
hand (or comment MDTM tests in the scripts ;)

dpkg-ftp ( unstable; urgency=low

  * Corrected guess for available space on disk when partition name is
    too long (pb reported by Todd T. Fries to Christian Hudon).
  * Removed support for un-gzipped Packages files, which just
    cluttered "install" uselessly.
  * Added to ability of continuing an interrupted Packages.gz
    download (there was no error handling there !).
  * Added small convenience perl lib under /usr/lib/perl5/.

dpkg-ftp ( unstable; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer release.
  * Added check on Packages files' date (mdtm) to prevent retrievial of
    already up-to-date files (Fixes: Bug#6018, Bug#8144, Bug#9276).
  * Added support for un-sectionned distributions (eg. `experimental')
    (Fixes: Bug#8598, Bug#15334).
  * Several cosmetic changes in output messages.
  * Switched dependencies to 'libnet-perl' (starting from 'hamm'),
    because the mdtm bug is fixed now.
  * Added the ability of retrying a download just after one aborted,
    without losing time re-reading all those files.
