Note we can access ftp.debian.org backends, that may give different figures
that access to security archive.
We also have the chance to have some very responsive admins of officials
mirrors, we can come with a script they may run.

IP address are no longer present in access log, I guess DSA did that change
for anonymity purpose, but it makes conclusions from logs parsing more difficult..

That gives, on August 2013, grepping Packages hits on security mirrors (before
tests with fastly):
squeeze or oldstable
wheezy or stable
jessie or testing

I need to clean my scripts a bit, and check with DSA how we can integrate that
to a role account.
