This is not true.

wouter@merkel:/org/ftp.debian.org/queue/done$ ls *ges|wc -l

These are only the *active* changes files, though:

wouter@merkel:/org/ftp.debian.org/queue/done$ find . -name 'nbd*ges'|wc -l

... since no .changes file is ever thrown away:

wouter@merkel:/org/ftp.debian.org/queue/done$ du -sh .

They may not be visible on the mirrors, but they are there.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
