After an ultimatum, Anthony Wong intervened and ftp.hk is finally fixed.

So, there we go. According to our records, all official Debian mirrors are
using a two-stage rsync strategy to avoid mirroring Packages files before
the debs. As for the unofficial mirrors - we can't really fix that
altogether, but we've had documentation, scripts and support mails updated
to help them for several years now, that's the best we can do.

If someone notices a broken mirror, please feel free to report it
individually, but the general issue is now practically fixed.

Therefore, I'm closing this 11 year old bug! :)
