i have new hardware on ftp.tuke.sk (ftp.sk.debian.org) - server is
faster, space is bigger, admin feels better ;-)

i have one question: now we have secure apt, so can we oficially mirror 
debian-security repositories? so anyone can use:
deb http://ftp.sk.debian.org/debian-security etch/updates main contrib non-free

yes, i read http://www.debian.org/security/faq#mirror

Q: Why are there no official mirrors for security.debian.org?

A: Actually, there are. There are several official mirrors, implemented
through DNS aliases. The purpose of security.debian.org is to make
security updates available as quickly and easily as possible.

Encouraging the use of unofficial mirrors would add extra complexity
that is usually not needed and that can cause frustration if these
mirrors are not kept up to date. Official mirrors, however, are planned
to be implemented in the future.

i think now is "the future" ;-)
