The problem is that nobody says what needs to be done. Debian has
several partial mirror scripts that work fine for many people. So it
can't be just that.

I heard that ftp-admin complained about alioth usage by debian-amd64.
But what do they expect if we have to alpha test apt-archive managing
software and rebuild the archive from scratch a few times (which means
nearly all of sid gets moved around).
