Just to let you all now, even though the server where manpages.debian.net is
pointing to now lacks a local mirror, I have updated it doing this:

- extracted now the manpages in a separate server (gluck.debian.org),
  transferred them to manpages.debian.net 
- updated the CGI in order to show 'Lenny' as a new option (and it is the
  default when searching)
- added some code to the CGIso that if the contents do not get refresh
  in the future users are warned about the issue. The date of the available
  contents is also liste.
- updated the regexp searches so that access to perl manpages work too
- updated the regexp of the web server so now manpages can be access
  directly, like this:

All the changes to the code are available now in the DDP SVN.

In any case, help in order to improve the service (and move it to a better
location) would be appreciated.
