 That's not directly related to security work, though given that lenny
fixes are announced through migration from unstable to testing I totally
understand why you get that impression. :)

 I added the site admin to the addressee and hope Florian can look into
the issue and get his server back in sync. Flo, do you know what's your
sync problem? http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/project/trace/ states
that you have last synced three days ago, problem with the trigger
possibly? Can you take a look?

 Something like that is a good approach as temporary workaround.

 The best suited list would be debian-mirrors@lists.debian.org because
it's a problem in the mirror network.

 Not really sure about that. Most services do though have these trace
files in which you could check the time of the last update they did.

 Thanks for your notice, hopefully it can get fixed soonish.
