Neat project. I'm jumping into it with a question which unfortunately is
not solving your problem.

You are asking generically Packages without specifying a mirror. Are
they granted to be identically replicated among all mirrors?  Of course
they *probably* are due to how mirroring works, but is it *granted* that
there are no differences among mirrors?

Would such difference inhibit proper installation due to the apt-secure
