It is better that filename header as
And debian-non-US looks like
bo -> ../debian/bo
stable -> ../debian/stable
non-free -> ../debian/non-free
contrib -> ../debian/contrib
dists/unstable/main -> ../../../../debian/dists/unstable/main
dists/unstable/non-free -> ../../../../debian/dists/unstable/non-free
dists/unstable/contrib -> ../../../../debian/dists/unstable/contrib
and debian shoule be mirrored next to debian-non-US.
Then we can dselect both Debian and debian-non-US at the same time
if you dselect
select method as ftp
host to non-us site
directy to /pub/.../debian-non-US
distribution to stable contrib non-free non-US
or dists/unstable/main dists/unstable/non-US ...
You can try it at ftp://ftp.jp.debian.org/pub/linux/debian-jp/, where
you can install packages of debian, debian-non-US, and debian-jp at once.
# Currently non-US packages is rebulit as above and make symlinks of deb files.
