Re: ,deb's follow Packages files to mirrors: nuts or what?

If the Packages files are updated last, then only one mirroring run is needed.

Assuming a normal safety net of a few older .deb versions being left
on the mirror, `apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade` users will
merely still seamlessly get today's picture until tomorrow's update is

Indeed, it is instead the bug defenders' apt-get that "just die if he
can't download whatever he wants, instantly."
