Some of you have told me the absolute same thing about
hylafax... and... yes, you're right: hylafax was added after my last
download of Contents-i386 (about a month old), so I did not have it
listed. I made a new download, and there it is.

As for ssl and apache-ssl, I downloaded the Contents-i386 from
germany, and found nothing.

Am I missing something? Is it present, but not listed? How am I
supposed to know about the packages that do not exist in the US

I think that the ideal would be to have the "Packages" section of the
www pages a subsection called "non-us" or something, where this
packages would be listed...
