/dists/hamm should be a sym link back to /hamm
This is because under the new system (being used as of slink) it will actually
be dists/distname/ but hame got a sym link there instead.
if you really have 2 versions then I would consider dropping /dists 
for now and just going with /hamm

later you can always change yer mirror to /dists/slink ;)

A favorite quote from a source I forget:
"Only Microsoft can take an algorithim that has been under years of
public scrutiny and weaken it to the point where the entire key space
can be searched in 3 days"

Unsubscribe?  mail -s unsubscribe debian-user-request@lists.debian.org < /dev/null
