The number (150/160) will be the number of source packages
updated. The number you're seeing and reporting will be the number of
binary packages. By my count, across all architectures and source
there were 8109 updated files in the pool. That's counting the files
in the diff that I use for generating the update CDs/DVDs.

Correct. When I'm working on a (point) release, I disable the daily
and weekly builds so as not to cause confusion or congestion on the
build machine.
