Yes, it is quite shameful ;) I have posted too quicky and though that a ~24
hour delay would be groosso-modo enough that packages.d.o would be a good
approximation of what we have on our mirrors. 

Actually, I remembered a post about ftp.debian.org saying “In the future, it
may get services reduced, or shut down, or converted into a globally
load-balanced name, or whatever. Please don't use it.”


Is “/org/ftp.debian.org” on merkel.debian.org the same as ftp.debian.org, or is
it a more canonical location ? /org/ftp-master.debian.org is a symbolic link to
/org/ftp.debian.org, and /org/ftp.debian.org/ftp is a symbolic link to
/org/ftp.root/debian, which itself is a symbolic link to
/org/mirrors/ftp.debian.org/ftp, and at this point I admit I do not know if I
am looking at a mirror of ftp.debian.org or a mirror of the master FTP site, which
according to the above email, is not ftp.debian.org…

Have a nice day,
