Thank you for the correction, I still miss some "local" information ;-)

I talked with Rene about that as well and I perfectly agree for
ftp*.d.o, but after having thought about that I fear that cdn.d.n will
not be affected :-(

Anyway, until the internal mirror is not ready, this is vaporware.

You were right, I was testing a wheezy installation via d1_alpha1 amd64
CD-1 plus debian.uni.edu.ni and I got "Encountered a section with no
Package: header" for Translation-* files.  I then switched to
cdn.debian.net (which resolved to and the installation
finished (slowly) fine.

Just forget my request for debian.uni.edu.ni, then :-)

Thx, bye,
