There was a name translation bug in the FTP-interface, which has been
fixed now. Please notice that the URLs produced are FTP-URLs; the FTP site
is overflowed with requests, so please download from a mirror
(see http://www.debian.org/ftp-list.html).

The missing information for various entries occurs when the script that
generates the pages isn't able to execute dpkg-deb; please contact me
directly if this occurs.
