Maybe that's because the release is 3.1r0 and not 3.1r0a?

It's only the CD and DVD images that have the 'a' appended to
denote that they're a bit newer and have this one bug fixed
that was announced on debian-devel-announce.  This is not a
new release, it's just fixed images, that were broken for about
one day from when the 3.1 announcement was sent out.



Of course, I didn't mean that, which is why I didn't say it.
