I talked with him and I hope he will just upload his package really soon.
This would enable qualified bug reports and would hopefully attract
clever Perl programmers who will fix the bug which breaks my mirror since
several weeks. Perhaps I should keep the bug-report inside the archive
and it applies to the package to come?

Done some weeks ago. Joerg has plans to fix the problem which seem to
be very reasonable. But I'm afraid that there would grow up forked
developments while Joerg is busy pamming and so I would prefer an
official package in the current state.

Well debmirror worked for me for several month until I was running into
timeout trouble ...
I would really love debmirror as *the* way to maintain a Debian mirror.
