I suppose Debian is promoting one-phase mirroring and two phase
mirroring is "roll your own".

If you want me to tell my administrator to do something, I need
something succinct, like "apt-get install two-phase-mirroring".

If this two-phase-mirroring is the way to go, then there ought to be a
standard package to do it. How can there be 10000+ packages but no
package to make sure the 10000+ packages get mirrored properly?

Any approved recommended debugged method would certainly have its own
package, where the administrator would merely enter some configuration
parameters in some /etc file.

Does http://www.debian.org/mirror/ at least have the
two-phase-mirroring script?

Is there any official documentation?
