Re: Just one package from woody with apt-get?

apt-get update just retrieves the latest Packages.gz file, which
contains a list of all packages in the archive

They are stored in /var somewhere, and are named according to
distribution (stable, unstable etc) and mirror used.

There is no need to do both. If you are using the apt-get method in
dselect, they both do the same thing.

There is probably no need to do either of these. You already have the
package lists from your usual archive.
