A note of caution:

Any user of dpartialmirror should check out mirrorer from alioth. I
only glanced at the webpage and haven't used dpartialmirror but now
that mirrorer has filtering support it looks like mirrorer could
replace dpartialmirror completly and I'm also thinking about retireing
debmirror in favour of a wrapper to mirrorer.
