You're quite corerct.  ftp.debian.org is the authoritative Debian
mirror for users. (for developers and ftp.debian.org there is also
master.debian.org, but that doesn't matter).  Unfortunately at this
moment our incoming directory isn't processed.  I believe that some
organisatoric (sp?) issues have to be finished first.

Please mirror ftp.debian.org or one of its mirrors.

Sometimes ftp.debian.org is one or two days behind master.debian.org.
I don't know why - this shouldn't happen...
