Thanks. I've posted them with a separate line
deb http://mirror.phy.bnl.gov/debian-root edgy root
for the benefit of Ubuntu users. You are properly thank'ed :-)
Whow, that line was fast - up to 35 MB/s! A traceroute showed no more
than 33 ms reponse time from Copenhagen. Ah, life is good on the
research network of Europe.

Yep, I think it is fair to assume that the builds will not work on
Debian stable or Ubuntu old-stable (see
http://www.ubuntu.com/news/610released). It works on Debian testing
(soon to be stable) as verified by another builder.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. However, we plan to upload to Debian
really soon, so hopefully the auto-builders of Debian an Ubuntu will
kick in :-)

Thanks again for the test and build.
