	I don't really know how they work, as already explained by
zobel the Mirrors-from where used by the push infrastructure, the
other fields were unknown to me, what I was doing is just trying
to keep Volatile Mirrors.masterlist using "good practices" IMHO
considering the existing and presented file format. :-)

	I mean that some of the clients of the push network use
non standard SSH ports to get pushed, I added support for that
in our script, but AIUI, volatile.d.o will push the changes from
verdi.d.o which will be maintained by Volatile Team, so it is
still a different script. :-)

	I had the impression that we are going to merge the
push infrastructure, then I realized that the Volatile archive
is on a different machine, with a different another dak instance.

	Zobel did that, I will comment on the other e-mail.

	Yes, I can grok that. ;)
