It's my understanding that Joerg plans to get that package into Debian

Joerg is the official maintainer of debmirror; I passed it to him once I
was unable to maintain a mirror for myself anymore, and so couldn't work
on the program. Send bug reports to him.

This is a pity, but it's not too suprising, since this is a new task and
no one implementation has reached a state where it dominates the field
(though debmirror seems to have a larger mindshare than most, it
certianly has its limitiations as well).
