The example config file applies a package filter to not mirror every
package of debian.  change pkgfilter to return 0 at the top to not
filter out any packages.

Ok, this starts to get a little off-topic to the debian-ppc list.  Maybe
we should move this discussion over to the debparanoia-discuss at
sourceforge? Creation of the list was just queued, it will take 6-24
hours until it is available (and until this link starts to work):


I might be able to help you if I can see a full log of your debparanoia
invokation (i.e.: debparanoia ... 2>&1 | tee logfile )

Please post the log (gzipped) to the list and/or file it with the
sourceforge bug tracker:


Never saw this problem with debparanoia on Ubuntu 10.04 nor 10.10.  Also
note how the SF page says debparanoia "alpha" :)
