Debian mirror - Transient hash sum mismatches for Translations files

Bonjour Jean-François, Hi Jean-François,
You might remember about a problem with iWeb's Debian mirror last year. Basically, APT fails to updates its indices if it contacts iWeb while iWeb is syncing. I understand that you quickly fixed this problem after being contacted by Simon Paillard in May 2012, by upgrading ftpsync to version 80387 (see http://debian.mirror.iweb.ca/debian/project/trace/debian.mirror.iweb.ca ).

Unfortunately, a new variant of this problem has appeared with the introduction of package translations causing similar symptoms to occur:

Although I'd argue that this is more an APT bug, one way to avoid the problem would be to update iWeb's ftpsync version (to 80486), or to switch to ftpsync-pushrsync. The latter should solve this kind of problem for good.

Thank you
