Re: Can I get some help, please?

Thanks for writing back.  Based on your response it sounds
like you don't want to encourage people to make local
limited archives that may not include all dists.

Incidentally, I did read the anonftpsync script many times
before writing to the list.  I just thought there might
be better documentation available somewhere.  I've read
through the entire /mirrors section of the debian.org
site several times.

I'll try to write something that would only mirror a single
archive and then get feedback.

What I'd like is to be able to test a file in the archive to know
whether or not I'm working with an official mirror.  It sounds
like there isn't a good way to do this.
