Strange snapshot repository behaviour


First, thanks for such a great service. It's fantastic to synchronise upgrade paths of multiple environments.

I have a query though: Looking, for example, at the python-minimal package. According to the site browser, python-minimal_2.5.4-9_all.deb was in since 2010-01-22 21:54:28 . Using a snapshot date equal to or after this, however, is still pulling in  2.5.2-3, i.e. an older version!

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20100204T000000Z/ lenny main
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20100204T000000Z/ lenny main
deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20100204T000000Z/ lenny/updates main
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20100204T000000Z/ lenny/updates main
#deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20100204T000000Z/ testing main

# apt-get update

# apt-cache show python-minimal
