Something is wrong in the daily build process for debian testing netinst and businesscard images

Package: debian-installer

Interestingly enough, though I first discovered this on the "powerpc" it's not unique to the "powerpc" -- the same thing seems to be happening for "i386".

Looking at the DebianInstaller/FAQ - Debian Wiki question 29 takes us to:

http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/ FAQ#head-1b80545b9731828a5f8298ff1b431748501b4382

Q: What types of media are available? What versions are available? Where to download?

Which points to


Going to the testing daily netinst cd image for powerpc takes us to

http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/daily-builds/daily/arch-latest/ powerpc/iso-cd/

Which contains:

Apache/2.0.53 (Debian GNU/Linux) Server at cdimage.debian.org Port 80

Note the respective dates of the MD5SUMS file and the ".iso" images!

The MD5SUMS file contains:
35e5eb99fd6fd3cf99d1eccf85ea6a9c  debian-testing-powerpc-netinst.iso

There is nothing for the businesscard image! Not that it matters, because when you download the netinst image, its md5 checksum doesn't match the one given in the MD5SUMS file. Which is not really surprising given the respective dates.

Something's wrong...

If this is not the right place to get daily testing images, then the links should be changed -- and incidentally, what *is* this directory for anyway?

If it is the right place to get daily testing images, then the build process is broken and ought to be fixed.
