  since I saw it happening for few days and saw no message on the
debian-user I though it might be just my problem.

  I just checked the bug database and it looks like it was fixed today,
can't check it though since I cannot get any packages (404 on ALL of
them). Anybody knows what's goint on? Are there new paths for distros?
