In a while you add a mirror of
http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/debian. That will roughly be
what is currently

The new server will be running Debians DAK suite and hopefully debians
original arch:all packages (what was named debian-amd64) instead of
rebuild packages (what was named debian-pure64). We still have to
convince the DAK to do it though.

An incremental (as in only files not already on a normal debian
mirror) view of the amd64 archive might or might not be provided in
the future. Haven't talked to ganneff about that yet.

The gcc-3.4/4.0 branch will be split of complety as a seperate alioth
project and will be rebuild completly with the now released gcc-4.0
for another round of bug finding. That branch is highly experimental
and not for general use. I highly doubt there is any use in mirroring
