Yes. Not sure how the downloader used by jigdo handles redirections, but it

For some reason, there no longer are "pdiff"s for stable, so it has to

Unless the files really changed, the Last-Modified-Since headers should have
prevented the download. Will have to check if they are correctly preserved,
it might be that.
