Re: package pool and big Packages.gz file
[read my previous semi-proposal]
this has some more benefits,
1) package maintainer could upload (to pool) in whatever
frequency they like.
2) release is seperated from package pool which is a storage
system. and release is a qa system.
3) release could be managed through BTS on specific package-gz.deb
that surely would put much more burden on BTS, ;-)
4) if apt-get could deal it well, i hope all of sub-mirror'ing issue
will be gone easily. just apt-get install some-rel-packages-gz then
apt-get mirror (just like download and move ...)
my more 2'c ;-)
