have any information so we can update the Debian WWW pages?

Is there another source for media for Debian for S390?
Sine Nomine Associates will sell you a preconfigured Debian etch
guest with VM installation tools and documentation, which is intended
to be used as an installer for more S/390 instances. Obviously it's
only useful under z/VM. It *is* really handy for those sites whose z/
VM machines aren't allowed to talk to the network-at-large.
However, doing a network installation is pretty straightforward, as
is using buildmirror to create a pool repository.
I don't know of anyone that does a straight-up media service for it.
