While I agree that binary-alpha being in slink is a good thing. What isn't a good
thing was that the mirrors (or at least I) wasn't told that binary-alpha was
moving and as such my mirror is fetching the entire damn thing again.

I've tried subscribing to debian-mirrors twice now btw if that was where I
was supposed to learn of the move but both times nothing seems to have happened
to my subscription message. Is there a trick to joining debian-mirrors?
