Re: Jigdo mirrors?


[We need testers for the STILL UNOFFICIAL Debian 3.0r0 DVD images!
If you have a DVD writer, fetch a DVD from
http://cdimage.debian.org/jigdo-area/3.0_r0/jigdo/dvd-test/ now and
please report back on debian-cd whether it boots and works!]

You can download both .jigdo and .template to the current directory
and then give the jigdo file to jigdo-lite, it will pick up the local
template file.

jigdo-lite already has support for relative URLs in the .jigdo file,
ATM the Debian files still use absolute URLs to support older
versions of jigdo-lite, such as the one in woody.

If the jigdo file uses a relative URL, the template will be downloaded
from the same place as the jigdo file - this is definitely the way to
go in the future.
