Bug#524988: debmirror: man page enhancement/bandwidth limit
Debmirror works for me (mirroring lenny and etch and squeeze), but the
manpage looks kinda outdated, and at first i got the impression, this
could be software soon to be deprecated.
I think, the newest debian-version mentioned in the manpage should not
be sarge, but squeeze or so, and what I really missed was a section
about return codes. (So I could run debmirror from a script).
And another enhancement, which i would like to see in the program is a
means to limit the bandwidth which it uses while mirroring.
