Bug#441292: allpackages.txt.gz no longer available. Replaced with broken link.
Last week, and several before, I obtained a text list of packages for
all current debian distributions. The address was

is now an error page.

found new links for what I want on the new
http://packages.debian.org/stable/ page. (Note that the end slash for
that page is required. That is another bug.) The links are
Both of these links are broken.

it is an improvement. I guess I understand that no matter how much beta
testing you do, you will have a ton of bugs when you finally go stable.
