Re: Package download

This is my sources.list. I'm using an Icelandic mirror, but I still have
security.debian.org in there.

* SNIP *

deb http://ftp.is.debian.org/debian/ testing main
deb-src http://ftp.is.debian.org/debian/ testing main

deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main

# testing-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.is.debian.org/debian/ testing-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.is.debian.org/debian/ testing-updates main

* SNIP *

Note that eventually I received the update through apt-get, but it
didn't seem to arrive when I received the email on DSA 3329-1. I would
think the packages would always already be updated on
security.debian.org when the DSAs get sent out. Is that not the case?

Kind regards,
Helgi Hrafn Gunnarsson
