In particular, for example, I stopped my initial debian-security (off
of aarnet mirror) debmirror run, after about 20 package downloads,
since I realised it said ~9GiB to download.
Just now I checked one package, with results as follows:
nice /usr/bin/debmirror --diff=mirror --md5sums
--include='/Translation-en.*\.bz2$' --verbose --progress
--method=ftp --root=pub/debian-security /public/debian/debian-security
Files to download: 9793 MiB
[ 0%] Getting: pool/updates/main/a/a2ps/a2ps_4.14-1.1+deb7u1.diff.gz #
[ 0%] Getting:
And when I check my main repos package pool:
$ find /public/debian/debian/|grep asterisk-config
and we see, the second result of my grep is the same package that was
just downloaded for debian-security.
Such inefficiency shall NOT be tolerated!
I guess another way to answer my question is: what is the time lapse
for packages to "migrate" from debian security repo, to regular debian
If automatically part of the next 24-hour (or less) 'catch up' then
there is no point my creating a local security repo.
Advice on this issue will be appreciated,
